June 25, 1910 "La Presse" Newspaper Page "The Fist Champions" - With Jack Johnson/Jeffries. NOTE: The page measures 17-1/8" x 22-1/4."
Offered is a rare front page to the June 25, 1910 edition the Montreal based "La Presse" newspaper featuring American Boxing Greats!.  The headline reads, "Les Champions du Poing" or roughly translated "The Fist Champions" along with portraits of past champions like John L. Sullivan, Corbett, Fitzsimmons, Burns, Jeffries and Jack Johnson and Tex Rikard.   Also seen is a scene from the 1908 Johnson Vs. (Canadian) Burns championship fight and two large, full-figure illustrations of Jack Johnson and Jim Jeffries regarding "The Fight of The Century" that happened on July 4, 1910, ten days after this paper was published... The left edge has been trimmed but there are no major signs of any damage. How few of these century old pages could still exist - probably no more than a handful.
