HISTORY: Johnny Coulon began his professional career in 1905. In his own hand he claimed to be Bantamweight Champion Of The World from 1907 to 1914, although the record and history of the sport indicate otherwise. He was an accomplished fighter and did lose a title bout to Kid Williams in 1914. In addition to Williams his opponents included Pete Herman and Charles LeDoux. He retired in 1920 and went on to run a gym for amateurs, performed as a referee and did a specialty act in vaudeville. Presented here is an original album page which has been boldly signed by Johnny Coulon.
