James J. Braddock vs. Tommy Loughran....



Item # 647403

July 19, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 19, 1929

* Tommy Loughran wins (1st report)
* James J. Braddock (Cinderella Man fame)
* Boxing - light heavyweight title fight


The sport's section (page 15) has a four column headline: "Loughran Beats Braddock and Keeps Title" with subheads and related photo. (see) First report coverage on Tommy Loughran winning the Light Heavyweight boxing title. This fight was about 6 years before Braddock's famous heavyweight championship fight against Max Baer. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
