Full Ticket to the September 6, 1892 World Featherweight Championship fight between Champion Jack Skelly and challenger George "Kid Chocolate" Dixon held at the Olympic Club in New Orleans. Dixon, who was black, defeated Skelly in the 8th round to take the title prompting many to say it was a mistake to match a negro and a white man in the ring, prompting segregation to begin appearing in the boxing ring. Ticket presents as VG-EX from the front but has some corner paper loss, a ding at the lower right corner, and a fingerprint size tear on the back resulting in the PR PSA 1 grade. The only ticket, full or stub, graded by PSA for this fight.
