Max Schmeling vs. Johnnny Risko in 1929

Item # 649879

February 02, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 2, 1929

* Max Schmeling (German boxer)
* Heavyweight boxing match
* Ring magazine fight of the year (1929)
* Madison Square Garden

The sport's section (page 11) has a banner headline: "Risko Is Knocked Out by Schmeling in Ninth Round Before 20,000 in Garden" with subheads and photo of Max Schmeling. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, a little spine wear, otherwise nice.
