NM PSA 7 $15 Reserved Bleacher Full Ticket to the World Heavyweight Championship fight between Champion Jess Willard and challenger Jack Dempsey held under the auspices of the Toledo Athletic Club in Toledo, Ohio on July 4, 1919. The fight was hailed as a modern day David & Goliath drama with Willard towering over Dempsey. It was really no contest. Dempsey knocked Willard down 7 times in the first round and gave the Champion a terrible beating. When Willard's corner would not let him come out for the 4th round, it was widely reported that the Champ had suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs, several broken teeth and a number of deep fractures to his facial bones. Stunning looking ticket with just a hint of corner wear. One of only 4 NM 7's with just one ticket rated higher.
