Most expensive Muhammad Ali memorabilia
At a charity auction in February, casino owner and co-owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship Lorenzo Fertitta dropped an astonishing $1.1 million on a pair of boxing gloves worn by Muhammad Ali. He narrowly beat out Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who had bid $1 million for the gloves earlier in the evening. Ali wore the gloves 46 years ago during his first Las Vegas title fight. They were sold at a gala and 70th birthday celebration for the boxer to raise money for Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, which Ali has battled since 1984.
