Muhammad Ali's Gloves Go on Display in Tokyo Exhibition
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

An autographed pair of Muhammad Ali's gloves went on display in an exhibition of boxing memorabilia at Tokyo's Korakuen Hall starting Saturday.

In addition to the gloves of the legendary heavyweight champion, the exhibit has gloves belonging to Masao Oba, the WBA flyweight champion who died in a car accident in 1973. Ali's gloves adorn one corner of the exhibition area near the entrance.

The exhibition came about through the cooperation of the Japan Boxing Commission and the Japan Professional Boxing Association. The plan is for items on display to be changed once every few months.

"I want to make this something amazing," said Hideaki Ohashi, the chairman of the JPBA. "I think it will fill up (with items on display)."
