Freddie Red Cochrane, World Welterweight Champion, Signed 8” x 10” B&W Photo.
Lot 211. Freddie Red Cochrane, World Welterweight Champion, Signed 8” x 10” B&W Photo. Nm-m 8 signature authenticated by Kevin Keating. In a July 29, 1941 fight in Newark, Cochrane won a 15-round decision against the incumbent champion, Fritzie Zivic. Technically, he held the title for the next five years – by not engaging in a championship fight. In 1945, Rocky Graziano knocked him out in what “Ring Magazine” chose as its “Fight of the Year.” In 1946, the title was vacated, and Cochrane failed in an effort against Marty Servo to reclaim it. Cochrane died in 1993. Kevin Keating authenticated his autograph, which is scarce. Current Bid $15.
