Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition.

This boxing documentary, directed by Jimmy Jacobs is about the former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. It was made in 1970 while Ali's future in the profession was in serious doubt. His boxing license has been revoked after he had refused to fight in Vietnam. The US Government had him prosecuted and he did not regain his license for three and a half years. This international poster was banned in America by a Government desperate to quash the rising sea of protest over Vietnam.
