LOS ANGELES, CA. - Any one who has followed the career of hometown boxing hero Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini remembers the fight that ended in the death of opponent Duk-Koo Kim.

Now, the contract that spelled out conditions for that historic fight is being offered to the highest bidder.

Bidding is underway on www.natedsanders.com for the 13 page contract dated September 16,1982.

The document contains edits and initials by promoters and Mancini's manager.

The bout for the Lightweight Championship match between Ray ''Boom-Boom'' Mancini and South Korean Duk-Koo Kim, took place November 13, 1982 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

After losing the match, Kim suffered brain injuries that led to his death five days later.

As of Thursday afternoon, one bid had been submitted in the amount of $2,000.

The auction ends on Thursday, March 27.

According to the auction site web page, the company was founded by Nate Sanders in 1986 as "Nate's Autographs" in Baltimore, Maryland, and initially dealt with inexpensive Hollywood signed photos and memorabilia, sent via mail catalog to a few local clients.

The company is now located in Los Angeles, and sends out several auction catalogs a year featuring autographed items, books, fine art, and other collectibles to a global client base.
