1954 Bobo Olson v Kid Gavilan on-site ticket
On April 2, 1954 Carl 'Bobo' Olson defended his Middleweight World Title against Welterweight Champion Kid Gavilan. Gavilan was small at the weight, a fact emphasized by him weighing in fully clothed! Olson successfully defended his crown, winning by a 15 round majority decision. Two judges scored the fight for Olson, the third had it even. This is an original on-site ticket from the Chicago Stadium. Features images of both fighters on the front. In very good, clean condition with minor creasing. The stub has been removed.
