Beautifully framed, 15″ x 43″, unique on site poster for the 45 round fight between Joe Gans and Battling Nelson on July 4th, 1908. This fight was their 2nd lightweight title bout. Their first fight, on Sept. 3, 1906 Nelson won in the 42nd round. They then fought again on July 4th, 1908, which this is the poster for that bout. Nelson won in the 17th round. They then fought again, two months later, and Nelson beat Gans for a third time, this time in the 21st round. One of the amazing aspects of this poster is the fact they it is being promoted as a 45 round fight. This 115 year old poster is in very good condition, with some wear and tear on edges, as pictured.
