2000 Supreme “Ali vs. Frazier” Tee
Supreme “Ali vs. Frazier” Tee
It’s no secret that Supreme likes to incorporate aspects of boxing into their clothing releases. There have been multiple items that feature Muhammad Ali, there’s the Everlast rips and the official collabs, and also the Sugar Ray releases just to name a few. This piece holds a bit of historical significance - not for Supreme, but for the overall design that is featured on the tee. The image on this tee was one of the original posters that were put up in the Filipino capital Manila to promote the third and final bout between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. With Frazier handing Ali his first loss which was by decision in the first fight and Ali then beating Frazier by decision in the rematch, many people believed the third one between the two had to have a definite end instead of them trading wins back and fourth through the judges. After many hard fought rounds between the two - and putting on possibly the greatest bout in boxing history - Ali would win via TKO in the 14th round.
