Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Jake Lamotta...



Item # 642393

February 27, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 27, 1943

* Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Jake Lamotta
* Boxing - Boxers - 3rd of 6 fights (tiebreaker)


The sport's section (page 17) has a four column heading: "Robinson Gains Award Over La Motta" with subheads. (see) This was the third of 6 fights between the two.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 28 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.
