Beautiful 1921 Panama Joe Gans vs. Jack Stone Framed Site Poster

Beautiful 1921 Panama Joe Gans vs. Jack Stone Framed Site Poster

Captivating poster of Panama Joe Gans' fight against Jack Stone scheduled for July 4, 1921, at the National Stadium Grounds in Atlantic City, New Jersey. There were a number of fighters going by the name Joe Gans, with numerous boxers having taken the name of an iconic African-American competitor who fought around the turn of the century. Panama Joe Gans was the World Colored Middleweight Champ for four years, shortly before the category was abolished. He was a great middleweight, but the better he fought the further he was pushed from a shot at a championship because of racial prejudice as well as the threat of his talent. Earlier in this year Gans had a very serious case of pneumonia, and after being away from the ring for about half a year, he made a comeback and fought 20 times in a little over seven months, winning all but once. Gans won this fight by way of KO in four rounds. Framed, measures 31x37". Also included is a separate 3.5x7" B and W photo of Gans.
