A signed Mike Tyson boxing glove belonging to Shropshire’s former world super-middleweight champion RichieWoodhall went under the hammer for £120 this morning at Halls last Interiors Auction of 2015. What a great end to a fantastic year for Halls Fine Art!

Mr Woodhall, of Lightmoor in Telford, will sell several more items from his collection at future auctions.
They include a 6ft 6in vinyl roller blind poster signed by WBC International and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, and a print of a fight between Joe Calzaghe and Jeff Lacy, which has been signed by Calzaghe.
A poster for last year’s second fight between Karl Froch and George Groves, which has been signed by Froch, will also be going under the hammer.
A print of the semi-final at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, between Richie and Roy Jones Junior, which has been signed by both fighters, will also be up for grabs, as well as a glove signed by former world middleweight champion Jake LaMotta.
A glove signed by Roberto ‘Hands of Stone’ Duran and a pair of gloves signed by Thomas ‘The Hitman’ Hearns and his trainer Emanuel Steward will also be auctioned.
