Step back in time to one of the biggest nights in boxing history! After holding the world heavyweight title for nearly three years in the late 1950s, Floyd Patterson was considered one of the greatest fighters of a generation. But on June 20, 1960, the pressure was all on Floyd's shoulders, as he looked to regain the title in a rematch against Ingemar Johansson, who took the belt in a humiliating defeat a year earlier. This time around, Floyd came prepared, and in the fifth round in front of a capacity crowd at the Polo Grounds in New York, he delivered this crushing jab that put Johansson on the mat for a ten count, and put Patterson back on top of the charts. There would be another successful rematch the following year, but as for pure excitement and tension, this was it - the Fight of the Year for 1960, and the first of many in a series of "Fights of the Century" to take place over the following 15 years.

This amazing print, published in poster size exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, features one of the greatest boxing photographs you'll ever see. A black-and-white beauty, it captures the perfect form and physique of Patterson as he stands above his handiwork - a crumpling opponent, falling to the mat in defeat. Printed in vivid detail on archival Kodak Endura photographic stock, this beauty is worthy of a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home, office, or gym. A rare boxing poster you won't find anywhere else!
