Gleason Stadium: A Unique Place
This event was held in the legendary boxing club Gleason Stadium in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) area of Brooklyn, New York. Including Ali, the club has trained more than 130 world champion boxers, dozens of whom have won the Golden Gloves.
The club, which will be relocated in a few weeks, has been on the ground floor of an inconspicuous building in the busy southeast of New York for 65 years. As soon as the door opens, everyone will be immersed in the world of boxing. The walls are covered with posters of boxing champions. There are four boxing arenas, training bags and treadmills in the hall, and images of Muhammad Ali can be seen everywhere. Gym owner Bruce Silverglade is over 75 this year and proudly tells the story of Gleason Stadium and Ali. ‘This is where Ali practises before the game that shook the world,’ said Schiffgrede. The game was Ali’s battle with world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston in 1964. Ali was named Cassius Marcellus Clay, and was born on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky. It was from this campaign that Ali began to create a legend, defeating opponents in six rounds and breaking everyone’s glasses. Liston, who played against him, was a fierce and terrifying enemy. His image was very different from the young Ali who loved reading poems and was ready to dominate the world. It was a battle everyone was eager to witness.
On the evening of the event, the Mohammed Ali Center displayed a commemorative watch made of pure gold, and attached a pair of boxing gloves, commemorative medals, and authenticity certificates signed by the champion of boxing Ali. Swiss-made studded leather case.
Created by TAG Heuer, this unique watch is inspired by the well-known Ring-Master chronograph, which was introduced in 1957, and is currently in the TAG Heuer Museum. Ring-Master is equipped with 7 bezels, each with a different scale, one of which is dedicated to boxing timing.
The watch was auctioned at the event, and all proceeds from the auction were donated to Mohammed Ali Centre.
