Opponents' Signatures project
One of its most notable endeavors is the Opponents' Signatures Project, which is gathering the signatures of all 50 fighters who faced Ali as a professional following his gold medal in the 1960 Olympics.
To date the Opponents' Signatures collection has 49 authorized signatures, from his first pro fight, versus Tunney Hunsaker on October 29, 1960, in Louisville, to his last, versus Trevor Burbick on December 11, 1981, in Nassau, Bahamas.
One signature remains. The only elusive opponent is Jim Robinson, who substituted for a scheduled boxer in a Miami Beach fight in 1961. Readers with information about Mr. Robinson or any question about the collection are invited to get in touch with Stephen Singer.
