Controversy in this boxing match...



Item # 593682

June 12, 1899

WELLSVILLE DAILY REPORTER, New York, June 12, 1899 

* Bob Fitzsimmons
* James Jeffries


The top of the front page has: "AFTER THE BIG FIGHT" "Letter From the Defeated champion Pugilist" "Warns His Friends Not To Bet" "He Had But Little Confidence in Winning the Battle with Jeffries--He Denies Ever Writing the Letter & Declares it a Forgery..." and further on is: "Fitzsimmons Denies It--He Declares He Never Wrote Such a Letter as Above Mentioned"
Four pages, light browning, nice condition. Should be handled with care.
