    1886 Kilrain vs. Clow Full Ticket. On December 22, 1886 in Baltimore, Maryland Heavyweight contender Jake Kilrain fought John Clow. Kilrain continued his pursuit of the Heavyweight title held by John L. Sullivan by pounding out a four round decision over Clow. Offered here is a full, unused ticket to this event. The ticket has a small crease in the lower left corner and some minor soiling on the front. There is some rounding of the corners and some minor edge wear. There is a small stain on the reverse. This is an extremely important and rare ticket from the late nineteenth century featuring a fighter Richard K. Fox of the Police Gazette would proclaim as Heavyweight Champion. The ticket is possibly unique. LOA from Craig Hamilton / JO Sports.
