On June 28, 1939 World Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis defended his title against Tony Galento at Yankee Stadium in New York. Galento, a hard punching rough and tumble sort, knocked Louis down early in the fight. Louis recovered and administered a ferocious beating on "Two Ton" Tony before stopping him in the fourth round. Offered here is an original wire photo depicting Louis knocking Galento down in the 2nd round. This is an original Associated Press wire photo with their stamp and caption on the back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back. Small crease in upper left corner. Minor corner wear. 7"x 9." Terrific and rare image.
