Riddick Bowe Vs. Gonzalez Signed Ticket Display From MGM Executive’s Collection
Out of stock
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.
The Riddick Bowe vs. Jorge Luis Gonzaelz fight cost Finfrock his trademark handlebar mustache. Not thinking Bowe was going to win the fight, Finfrock agreed to shave off his facial hair if the former champ prevailed, which he did. This huge display (33 1/4" x 36 1/2") features personal photos (Finfrock before and after his mustache was gone), two unused tickets, a promotional advertisement, gambling chips, a special fight medallion and all-access pass. One photo is signed by both boxers while Gonzalez signed two separate photos and Bowe penned his name to another smaller photo. Even trainer Rock Newman got in on the festivities and signed a photo. Shipping may be substantial given the immense size.
