    Description

    Joe Louis Fight Worn Trunks Joe Louis, "The Brown Bomber," won the World Heavyweight Title in 1937. He held that title for eleven years, a record that still stands to this day. One of the most prolific punchers in the history of the heavyweight division, Louis was a champion that met all comers. He retired with an incredible ring record which included victories over Max Baer, Jack Sharkey, James J. Braddock, Primo Carnera, Max Schmeling, Billy Conn and Jersey Joe Walcott, each a champion in his own right. One of the most coveted collectibles of great former champions is the ring attire worn in combat. Offered here are a pair of trunks once used by Joe Louis. These trunks are purple satin with blue trim. On the waistband is found the manufacturer's label for Everlast with the added logo, "Made Expressly For Joe Louis." On the lower left leg are the initials "JL". The trunks were originally given to a business associate of Joe Louis by the champ and are offered with a letter of authenticity explaining how they were obtained. Slight fading, but in overall fine condition. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
