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.
