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 from this bout. Abe Attell and Joe Choynski are also pictured in the photo.
This first generation, antique photo from the Johnson-Jeffries bout is 4 1/2" x 6 1/2." The photo is in excellent condition and is clean with no rips or tears.
