LOUIS, JOE-PRIMO CARNERA ORIGINAL ON SITE POSTER (1935)
On June 25, 1935 at Yankee Stadium in New York undefeated heavyweight and rising star Joe Louis fought former champion Primo Carnera in the main event. In a very one sided affair Louis pounded Carnera and stopped him for good in the 6th round. Carnera visited the canvas three times before becoming "utterly helpless, clinging to the top rope" when the bout was stopped (The New York Times). Offered here is a very rare on site poster for this event. It pictures Primo Carnera and advertises the date and venue.
This is an original, cardboard, on site advertising poster. Bold color and clear, sharp image. Bold print. Clean. No creases or tears. Edge and corner wear. Minor surface 16" x 20." Extremely rare.
