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 photo from this bout, showing the scene at ringside.
This first generation, antique photo from the Johnson-Jeffries bout is 6 1/4" x 8." There is some soiling along the edges. There is some light wear along the right edge. The photo has been mounted on cardboard.
