A group of seven "A" sections from New Jersey and Philadelphia newspapers featuring boxing headlines.
While six cover various fights, both victories and losses by The Manassas Mauler, Jack Dempsey, one from The Daily State Gazette of Trenton, New Jersey is from July 5, 1910, cover the "Fight of the Century" between Jim Jeffries and Jack Johnson in Reno, Nevada.
The headline reads, "Jim Jeffries Put to Sleep By Jack Johnson in 15th."
The fight was covered by former gunfighter Bat Masterson, author Jack London and former boxers, James Corbett, Bob Fitzsimmons and John L. Sullivan.
The coverage article doesn't have a byline to state who wrote the coverage, but the article gives a round by round description of the fight.
Nice collection for any boxing fan.
