EMILE GRIFFITH
Shown with boxing gloves poised
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Jim/My best wishes always/from/Emile Griffith". B/w, 7½x8½, Emile Alphonse Griffith (1938-2013) was matched against Benny "Kid" Paret for his first welterweight title at Miami Beach on April 1, 1961, and he won with a knockout in the 13th round. When Griffith fought for the world middleweight title on April 25, 1966, against Dick Tiger, he won a 15-round decision, becoming the third fighter to hold both the welterweight and middleweight championships. Griffith used foot and hand speed to throw a lot of short, quick punches and combinations. Griffith was sometimes accused of lacking the "killer instinct", but he won 85 professional fights, 23 by knockout, while losing only 25, two by knockout. Griffith's record also includes two draws and one no-contest. Corners lightly creased. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
