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 ferious beating on "Two Ton" Tony before stopping him in the fourth round. Presented here is an antique photo from this bout.
This antique photo from the Louis-Galento bout is 7" x 9." The corners are slightly soft and there are small creases in the center of the photo. There is some light soiling along the top edge. No rips or tears.
