THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 19, 1936
* Joe Louis vs. Jack Sharkey
* Heavyweight boxing
This 44 page newspaper has a banner headline on page 25: "Crowd of 30,000 Sees Louis Stop Sharkey in Fight at the Yankee Stadium" with subheads that include: "LOUIS KNOCKS OUT SHARKEY IN THIRD" "Loser Down Four Times" and more with two action photos. Loads of text text, too much to photograph. This was Louis' last major match-up before winning the Heavyweight boxing title from James Braddock. Nice to have from the city where it happened.
Other news, sports and advertisements throughout. Light browning, minor margin wear, otherwise good condition.
