    Whilst we've got a lull of action going on due to Coronavirus, was wondering what kind of boxing memorabilia people have.

    Do you have, Signed posters, Programmes, Gloves, historic, fight worn gear etc?

    If you have anything what would you class as your best piece?

    Apparently a relative of Greb gave away a pair of Greb's gloves on facebook so it could well be fake. I will post the screenshot when I get in from work, I can imagine they would be worth a few quid.

    Not got a lot.

    Just Frank Brunos autograph and a programme from Bruno vs Tyson my older brother got me from Las Vegas when they fought the second time. I remember as a kid being really impressed with the shiny gold writing on it. Doesn't seem as impressive as a grown man but still nice to have lol.

    I had a Hatton signed glove but I sold that recently.
    My best possession is a signed glove and photo of myself with Larry Holmes. I got a case for it and when I used to own a sports bar it had prime place behind the bar.
    Got programmes from big fights in the 90s and 00s.
    I've got some other good stuff as well.

    Plenty, but my favourite is a signed pair of mini gloves by Gary Mason, there is a story to it which i put on a similar thread a while back.

    Does anyone have any fight worn gear, like gloves, handwraps, robes etc?

    Can imagine a lot will be expensive and very rare.

    If you have any stories to your pieces, feel free to share them!

    Got a limited edition (100 issued I think) of Jack Dempsey when he was punched/pushed through the ropes against Firpo. Apparently its worth a few quid but I'd never part with it. i also have signed gloves from Calzaghe and a heap of DVDs and Books!

    When I was 15, in 1983, I met Muhammad Ali at the Albany Hotel in Birmingham. I wouldn't say I blagged my way in as everyone was telling me he was having his breakfast in the carvery on the first floor. Even his bodyguard told me to go in. I had a brief one to one with him and have a dedicated autograph in my book.
