Abe Attell, often referred to by newspapers as "The Little Hebrew," originally became known for his record-setting, six year consecutive reign as World Featherweight Champion from 1906-1912. Said to be a friend of the gangster Arnold Rothstein, Attell was later charged with game fixing in the Black Sox Scandal in 1919, but the charges were dismissed before trial. He also was suspected of other infractions including fixing fights, and using drugs during a fight. From his boxing days comes this two-page boxing program featuring Attell vs. McGovern. The program features an image of the "Arena Of International Athletic Club" and both of their all-time records. 9.5x12 .5" with spine repair.
