1969 Madison Square Garden – Joe Frazier vs. Jerry Quarry – Rare Media Press Kit Packet Folder Feat. Leroy Neiman Design (Futch Collection)

This collection originates from the family of Eddie Futch. Futch was a legend among legends in the field of boxing. He started his tutelage in the gym alongside Joe Louis and often sparred with him back in the 1930s.

Futch’s career was short-lived on the professional level in the ring as a heart murmur prevented him from achieving the dream for himself. However, it did not prevent him from doing the training with the highest level of athletes he could get his hands on. He trained them to compete at their very best. In fact, some say he was the best.

The Hall of Fame trainer worked with champions like Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, Michael Spinks, Alexis Arguello, Marlon Starling, Wayne McCullough , Montell Griffin, and his first world champion fighter, Don Jordan, who was crowned world welterweight champion in 1958. A family letter/estate letter will be included for authentication.

This media packet was for the boxing match between Joe Frazier and Jerry Quarry. The heavyweight title fight with Futch in Frazier’s corner was held on June 23, 1969 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The kit has pages of typed information about the fighters and events for the evening. The folder also has a bit about the artist involved with the promotional designs as shown on the folder, Leroy Neiman.
