1921Jack Dempsey vs. Georges Carpentier Signed Panoramic Photograph

1921Jack Dempsey vs. Georges Carpentier Signed Panoramic Photograph

On July 2, 1921 at Boyle’s Thirty Acres in Jersey City, New Jersey World Heavyweight Champion Jack Dempsey defended his title against the great French Champion, Georges Carpentier. The fight was witnessed by 80, 183 fans who produced boxings’ first million dollar gate. The fight was also the first heavyweight championship to be broadcast from ringside by radio. Dempsey was the bigger and stronger of the two and used his strength and power to gain advantage. Carpentier broke his right thumb in the second round, but fought on gamely. In the fourth, however, Dempsey proved too much putting the Frenchman down for a nine count before ending it for good a few seconds later. Offered here is a beautiful original panoramic photograph of the event picturing the fighters and their handlers in the ring and the huge crowd of onlookers. The photograph measures 10” x 46'' and has been framed. It has some light soiling. Overall excellent condition with a bold, crisp image. The photograph has been signed at the top by Georges Carpentier and his manager Francois Descamps along with several other dignitaries. This is a very rare panorama and rarer still signed by Carpentier and his camp members.
