LOUIS, JOE-JERSEY JOE WALCOTT II WIRE PHOTO (1948)
On June 25, 1948 World Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis defended his title against Jersey Joe Walcoot at Yankee Stadium in New York.

This was the rematch and this time Louis took care of all doubts stopping Walcott in eleven rounds. Presented here is an antique photo from this bout. This antique photo from the second Louis-Walcott bout is 7" x 9." There are small creases in the corners and along the edges. Clean image with no rips or tears.
