NEW YORK - The gloves Muhammad Ali wore when he beat Sonny Liston to win his first heavyweight world title fetched $836,500 at Auction on Saturday, almost 50 years to the day after fight. The gloves were part of Heritage Auctions' Sports Platinum Night Auction , and the price was posted on the website. The buyer was not identified. The gloves were used by the young fighter from Louisville, Kentucky, then named Cassius Clay, to launch a legendary boxing career that made him a global sport icon. Clay won a gold medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics and four years later faced a heavily favored Liston at Miami Beach. Liston was coming off back-to-back first-round knockouts of Floyd Patterson, the first to end Patterson's six-year reign in the heavyweight division and the second to defend the crown.–AFP
