EMILE GRIFFITH
Black and white photograph of Emile Griffith mugging for the camera with his hands up.
Photograph signed: "Emile Griffith". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 7¼x8½ (one surface). Emile Griffith (1938-2013), born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, was World Welterweight Champ in 1961, 1962-1963 and 1963-1965 and World Middleweight Champ in 1966-1967 and 1967-1968. He was matched against Benny "Kid" Paret for his first welterweight title at Miami Beach on April 1, 1961, and won with a knockout in the 13th round. Griffith fought against Dick Tiger for the world middleweight title on April 25, 1966. 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 short, quick punches and combinations, but often seemed to lose his concentration and focus, even during important fights. Ironically, he was often accused of lacking the "killer instinct". Griffith won 85 professional fights, 23 by knockout, and lost 25, two by knockout. He also fought two draws and one no-contest bout. Griffith was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990. Fine condition.
