LOUIS, JOE-PRIMO CARNERA WIRE PHOTO (1935-END OF FIGHT)
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 an original wire photo depicting Louis raising his hand in victory at the end of the fight. This is an original ACME Newspictures wire photo with their stamp and full caption on back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back. Small creases in lower left and upper right corners. No tears. 7" x 9." Terrific image.
