On September 9, 1909 at Mission Street Arena in San Francisco, California heavyweight champion Jack Johnson defended his title against Al Kaufman. At the end of ten rounds Johnson was declared the winner. "Jack Johnson had no trouble winning a 'newspaper' decision over Al Kaufman this afternoon in ten rounds. "There was an agreement that no decision was to be rendered if both were on their feet at the end. Johnson landed almost at will, while Kaufman got in only two effective blows. It appeared as though Johnson could have ended the fight at any time." (Associated Press). Offered here is an original, first generation photograph by the noted Dana Studios depicting the two fighters squaring off in the ring before the start of the fight.
