Joe Louis... Buddy Baer...



Item # 556823

January 10, 1942

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, January 10, 1942 

* Joe Louis (The Brown Bomber)
* Buddy Baer 
* Heavyweight boxing title fight
 

This 32 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page that include: "LOUIS STOPS BAER IN OPENING ROUND AS 20,000 LOOK ON" "Californian Is Counted Out in 2:56 After Two Previous 9-Count Knockdowns"

More on page 19 which is mostly pre fight news w/ photo. The news of Louis winning must have just broke before this edition went out onto the streets.

This was Joe Louis' 20th defense for the World's heavyweight title. 

Other news of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise in good condition.
