1922 Joe Beckett v Frank Moran on-site program (signed by Jack Bloomfield)
Scarce on-site programme from the Royal Albert Hall, London October 12, 1922. Top of the bill was an important international heavyweight contest between British Champion Joe Beckett and American Frank Moran, who famously challenged both Jack Johnson and Jess Willard for the World Heavyweight Championship. Beckett defeated Moran via TKO in the seventh round. In the chief support Jack Bloomfield fought Bombardier Billy Wells at heavyweight. Bloomfield knocked Wells out in the sixth of a fifteen round contest. Jack Bloomfield has autographed page thirteen, beside his image. Although somewhat faded, the signature is still fully legible. The program is in fair condition. A horizontal fold runs throughout and has been reinforced with tape to the inside of the front cover. There's soiling to several pages. Edge tears to the covers and spine. The program remains fully intact.
