It always seems like the restaurants are filled more on Mother's Day than Father's Day. It also seems as though more thought is given to gifts for mom on their day, while dad is often stuck getting a really ugly tie or hideous sweater. If your dad is a fan of boxing, why not help fill his memorabilia collection with something he will enjoy, like some of these items?
Manny Pacquiao Signed Boxing Glove - $199.99
Pacquiao may be in the news lately for his controversial split decision loss to Timothy Bradley last weekend, but he is still considered one of the best fighters in the sport today. As long as dad isn't a fan of Floyd Mayweather, then this signed red glove would be the perfect addition to the bar area of your fathers basement.
Floyd Mayweather Signed Picture - $112.50
If dad is on the side of "Money" in the Pacquiao feud, then this autographed 11x14 picture may be the best gift for him on his day. This picture is a wonderful action shot of Mayweather punching Oscar De La Hoya in their May 2007 fight in Las Vegas, Nev.
Muhammad Ali Signed Baseball - $1,410.44
It's not often that fans ask their favorite athletes to sign something that they didn't compete with, but when they do, that item could become costly. That is the case with this 100 percent authenticated autographed baseball from the greatest boxer of all time.
George Foreman Signed Book - $154.98
The younger generation may only think of Foreman as the man who created one of the most popular grills in the world, but dad will remember Foreman as one of the best champions in the history of boxing. He had a certain charisma in the ring that has transferred to the promotion of his grill and everything else that comes with it. This book, George Foreman's Big Book of Book of Grilling, Barbecue, and Rotisserie Book comes signed by the former champion.
