Larry Donald WBC Champ 3-12-94 Fight Worn Gloves From MGM Executive’s Collection

To some Dennis Finfrock was simply the man with the handlebar mustache. But Finfrock helped take boxing in Las Vegas to the next level. As the MGM Grand’s VP of Special Events, Finfrock managed what boxing matches would come to the MGM and also brought in the Rolling Stones, Barbra Streisand and countless other show stoppers to the area. After Mike Tyson was released from jail, it was Finfrock who inked him to a $20 million dollar deal which secured Iron Mike’s services at the MGM Grand.
In 1995 the Las Vegas Sun ranked the top 10 Las Vegas sports figures, Finfrock was the runaway choice at No. 1. He was placed above such notables as Bob Arum and Andre Agassi. Now battling Parkinson’s Disease, Finfrock has slowed down from his workaholic ways.
Each of the signatures or match-used mementos was obtained by Finfrock during his days working at the MGM Grand Garden. AMI is proud to present personal treasures from Finfrock’s collection. These have never been offered for public sale until now.
Although not media savvy, see Riddick Bowe pre-fight press conference, Larry Donald was a champion at the highest level. We assume Donald wore these gloves when he won the WBC Championship March 12, 1994 given the inscription. Donald signed ("7") both and inscribed "WC Champion 3-12-94." He must have gifted these to the MGM because the left glove is written "To MGM."
The leather mitts show signs of use. The inside of the wrist has taken on a pinkish hue from sweating. "Larry Donald #1" is written on the Everlast manufacturer’s label in thin black felt tip and also on the inner wrist area of both.
