2 1930s British Boxing Programs, 1 for the World Flyweight Championship Fight.

Lot 246. 2 1930s British Boxing Programs, 1 for the World Flyweight Championship Fight. 1. Sept.22, 1938, Liverpool Stadium. England’s Peter Kane decisioned the USA’s Jackie Jurich for the vacant flyweight championship. He retained the title until 1943, although he frequently fought as a bantamweight because of difficulties in making the weight limit for flyweights. The 12-page 7.5” x 9.75” program, including covers, has a 2” tear on each page; the tear is reinforced with tape on the covers. Both Kane and Jurich receive a full-page photo. 2. July 17, 1939, Leicester. In a non-title fight, British lightweight champion Eric Boon knocked out Len Wickwar. Both boxers are pictured in the program, and so is Dave Crowley. Boon took the British lightweight title from Crowley on December 1938 and won a December 1939 rematch. Boon also participated in the first televised boxing match, on Feb. 23, 1939 vs. Arthur Danahar in England. Boon won. The 20-page 8” x 10.25” program is vg+ with splits along the spine. Minimum Bid $30.
