Jack Dempsey comeback try fails... Boxing...

Item # 683796

February 19, 1932

SECTION 2 ONLY (Sports) of the Chicago Tribune, Feb. 19, 1932

* Jack Dempsey vs. King Levinsky
* Comeback tour ends in defeat (last fight)
* Heavyweight boxing exhibition bout

The top of the front page of this section has a nice banner headline: "LEVINSKY DEFEATS DEMPSEY BEFORE 22,000" with subheads. Nice for display. Three related photos are on the back page. (see)
Complete with all 12 pages, rag edition in very nice condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.

wikipedia notes: On February 18, 1931, Levinsky also fought a 4-round exhibition with Jack Dempsey. Dempsey had embarked on a tour of exhibition bouts and was contemplating a comeback. The Levinsky fight convinced him that he was through as a fighter.
