Indiana Posted October 24, 2018 Share Posted October 24, 2018 Hi, Not sure if anyone can help but I have a pair of boxing gloves signed by the following boxers/promoters back in the late 70's or early 80's, and I want to know where these gloves might have been signed if possible. I would like to send an email to each of the boxers asking them if they remember a time when they were at an event (with the other listed boxers/promoters) where Muhammad Ali was also in attendance. May have been an Ali exhibition or dinner. It has been suggested that the gloves were possibly signed in 1977 at a dinner in the West End (London) in honour of Ali, organised by a guy called Peter Shaw (Not the footballer). These are the names I have who I know, or believe are still alive: Maurice Hope John L Gardner Jim Watt Clarence Hill Alan Minter Cornelius Boza-Edwards David 'Boy' Green Jimmy Batten (Already contacted) Names of those who signed the gloves but are now deceased: Muhammad Ali Micky Duff Al Phillips Mike Barrett Kenneth Wolstenholme - Sports Commentator If anyone can help with contact details of any of the boxers/promoters who are still alive I would be very grateful. Kind regards, Indy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
