Scarce contract signed by Muhammad Ali for his scheduled comeback fight against Joe Frazier, dubbed the "Fight of the Century." Single page "Agreement in principle" is signed in blue ink at the conclusion "Cassius Clay" and countersigned by promoter Harold Conrad and a representative for Sports Action Inc. who held media rights to the fight. Datelined 14 October 1969 in New York, contract obligates Ali to fight 15 rounds with Frazier, to be held in Las Vegas in February 1970, with the condition of Conrad securing a license for Ali to fight in Nevada (which of course delayed the fight until 1971). Agreement also provides Ali with 40% of admission revenue and 40% of net proceeds from media rights. Contract is in near mint condition with two hole punches at top. Important document that was a stepping stone to what most people consider the greatest fight in the history of the sport.

Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
