Both Muhammad Ali & Sonny Liston's fight worn boxing gloves from the famous 'phantom punch' bout are set to auction at Heritage. The auction comes 50 years after the fight took place-a fight which proved to be one of the most controversial in sporting history. Rumors were rife of match fixing after Liston suffered a knockout in the first round and it remains unclear to this day as to whether Liston threw the fight or Ali beat him outright. The gloves are estimated to sell for over $500,000 this February.
