Presented is a cornerman’s jacket worn by Tom Samario that was autographed by two of the greatest boxers of the 1970’s-80’s and half of the “Four Kings” Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran. Samario was working fights at the Chinook Winds Casino in Oregon in 2000. Both fighters were in attendance as guests of honor. Each fighter (Leonard and Duran) signed a sleeve in black felt tip (“9”) for Samario. Jokingly, each fighter punched him in the arm to make the fight “official”. Note, there is some blood remnants on the jacket not from their punches but from one of the preliminary round competitors as it was a working jacket. The jacket has TOM sewn on the front chest and the brand RINGSIDE on the opposite side. A letter of provenance will attend from Samario.
