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. Offered here is a copy of the Omaha Daily Bee for the date July 5, 1910 which has complete coverage of the fight and pictures Jack Johnson and Jim Jeffries on the cover. The paper gives complete coverage about the fight, including complete round by round coverage.
