Description : Here we have a mega rare vintage onsite poster billed as "Clash for the Crown", for Undisputed Heavyweight Championships on 16th October, 1987.

This fabulous poster has been signed by both Mike Tyson & Tyrell Biggs the month before the fight, classic careful vintage signatures from both Tyson & Biggs........This poster was obtained from Mike Tyson's former co-manager & friend Mr Steve Lott, you can see Steve in the corner with trainer Kevin Rooney at all Mikes early fights before Don King appeared on the scene.....

Only two months prior to his match with Biggs, Tyson had defeated Tony Tucker by unanimous decision to unify all three major heavyweight championships and become the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion. Though many had hoped this would lead to a match with Lineal Heavyweight champion Michael Spinks, Spinks remained reluctant to face Tyson. As such, Tyson instead chose to face one of his mandatory challengers, 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist Tyrell Biggs, who was undefeated since turning pro. Prior to their fight, Biggs bashed Tyson in the press, boldly stating among other things "He`s never fought anyone like me. I don't know this Tyson the way you guys talk about him. I know Tyson from way back when." Biggs would also promise to use his mobility overall boxing ability against the stronger Tyson stating "He's strong, but his strength will not hurt me. Every fighter I fight is stronger than me, but as the fight goes on, as I use my mobility and boxing ability, strength is no longer a factor. What will he do then?

Well Tyson did plenty! He smashed Biggs to a pulp, Tyson was to say after the fight "I could have knocked him out in the 3rd round but I wanted to do it slowly, so he would remember this night for a long time."

The lucky purchaser of this holy grail will be supplied with a Letter of guarantee of authenticity signed by Mr Steve Lott & a covering LOA from KOfightposters.
