Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Jimmy Doyle tragedy....



Item # 624001

June 25, 1947

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 25, 1947.

* Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Jimmy Doyle
* World welterweight title fight
* Death in the boxing ring


The sport's section (page 33) has a banner headline: "Doyle in Critical Condition After Knockout by Robinson in Eighth Round" with subheads that include: "LAST RITES GIVEN BOXER IN HOSPITAL" and more. Also a nice photo of the fatal blow. (see) Nice to have in this famous NYC title.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
