Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali met for the second time at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 1974, each seeking a victory to set up a title bout against champion George Foreman. There was also the revenge factor for Ali, who had suffered his first professional loss to Frazier in their first ring encounter in 1971—a historic match that yielded what many consider to be one of the most controversial decisions in boxing history.

This relatively scarce Ali-Frazier II official on-site poster measures 23" x 30" and pictures the legendary pair with their dukes up. The sturdy cardboard piece presents well overall with radiant graphics and a smooth glossy veneer. There is a vertical crease near the left edge, incidental edge wear, and a handful of minor surface wrinkles. Ali pounded out a solid, albeit close, 12-round decision. The pugilist poet later recaptured the Heavyweight Championship by defeating Foreman in Kinshasa, Zaire.
