LOS ANGELES TIMES, September 30, 1977

* Muhammad Ali vs. Earnie Shavers

The frontpage of the sports section has the two-line, two-column heading: "Ali Can't Make the 'Acorn' Fall", with subheads: "Shavers Goes Route, Loses the Decision" and "Shavers: 'I Just Kept Calling Him An Imbecile'", with a large photo. The inside has additional related coverage and photos. Although never receiving the recognition of some of his other fights, many experts regard Ali's performance in the Shavers fight to be one of the finest in his boxing career.
The issue includes nearly 100 pages - being the complete first, complete sports, and a few additional sections, but does not include all portions - as most, being unrelated to the key coverage, were never saved. Very good condition.
