Exactly 50 years ago today Muhammad Ali beat Sonny Liston. The boxing gloves that he wore in that 1964 bout against Liston sold for almost three times the expected amount at an auction last Saturday. That fight gave a very young fighter from Louisville, Kentucky named Cassius Clay his first heavyweight world title.

 

The gloves sold at auction for a reported $836,000.
