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 waiting in a corner as a staggering Carnera arises after a knockdown. This is an original International News Photo wire photo with their stamp on back. No caption, but labeled on back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back. Tiny creases in two left corners. Minor edge wear. 6 1/2" x 8 1/2."
