Corbett stopped the champion in the 21st round to win the title. Presented here is a full, unused ticket to the event. This ticket is in Excellent condition. It has no creasing and only minor foxing. Small chip at lower left corner. Some glue stains on the reverse from mounting. A scarce and desirable ticket, especially in this overall Excellent condition.
