Floyd Patterson vs Sonny Liston Fight Pictures, the 1962 boxing sports event ("Scoop!"; "World's Heavyweight Championship Bout!!!"; "World heavyweight championship"; "See it big, exclusively in this area on closed circuit screen theatre TV"; "Complete round-by-round blow-by-blow!!"; "Filmed at ringside"; "All the action!! All the thrills!!"; "See the highlights in slow motion!"; "Champion Floyd"; "Challenger Sonny"; "No home TV"; "Direct from ringside - Comiskey Park - Chicago") featuring Floyd Patterson, and Sonny Liston. This fight took place in Chicago on September 25th and Patterson (who was the reigning Heavyweight Champion) was the favorite to win. However, Patterson lost his title to Liston by a first-round knockout. Note that from the 1910s through the 1960s, major heavyweight boxing matches were filmed, and then released to theaters soon afterwards, often taking in huge amounts at the box office. At some point, matches were broadcast "live" on pay-per-view, which ended this practice. Note that this was the first fight between these two great fighters. They had a rematch, which occurred in Las Vegas on July 22, 1963, and there is a 1963 one-sheet advertising the filmed version of that fight (and on that poster, the images are the same, but they, and the fighters' names, are reversed).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds and minor fold wear. It had some writing on the back of the top left corner that very slightly bleeds through to the front. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
