History: On July 4, 1910 Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight title against Jim Jeffries, the former champion. Jeffries had retired undefeated champion after his last fight in 1904. Encouraged greatly by a racist public eager to get rid of Jack Johnson, Jeffries agreed to fight Johnson, but age and an almost six year lay-off, coupled with Johnson's great skill and youth proved to be too much. Jeffries was easily defeated in a one sided match. Presented here is an original, first generation, antique Dana photo of Johnson's corner.

Full description: This first generation, antique photo from the Johnson-Jeffries bout is 4 1/4" x 6 1/2." The corners are slightly soft and there is some wear along the bottom edge. Clean photo.
