    Description

    1940 Joe Louis vs. Arturo Godoy Full Ticket.

    UPDATE: Consignor and renowned Las Vegas boxing promoter Bob Halloran will be providing a letter of provenance with this lot.

    Rare unused ticket for a bout that saw the Brown Bomber nearly toppled by the underdog Godoy, Louis escaping with a split-decision victory at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Four months later Louis would improve his performance with an eighth-round TKO in the rematch. Ticket exhibits only light toning at edges and corner softening, otherwise no issues of note.
