He also fought for the world heavyweight championship in 1894, losing by third round KO to James J Corbett. The carte de visite measures approximately 4 x 2.5" and presents in VG-EX condition. There is some light surface creasing notable to the back side and a little age spotting. The front displays superbly for the age of the piece.
