    1938 Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling Full Fight Ticket. The great Joe Louis learned that revenge is a dish best served cold as he met the only man who had ever vanquished him in the ring two years and three days after that crushing defeat. Louis had confided in his trainer that he intended to devote all of his energy to the first three rounds, confident that he would be able to dispose of Schmeling with a "bull's rush" strategy. Louis' prediction was proven to be overly conservative, as he sent the German to the canvas three times before the referee mercifully called an end to the bout at two minutes and forty seconds of the first round. Issued for the Yankee Stadium bout is this full ticket. Each of the four corners has rounded. A slight stain appears near Louis' mug shot on front and there is slight paper loss on back. The right upper corner has a modest crease. EX in our estimation.
