    Description

    Kid Chocolate 1931 Fight Worn Robe Kid Chocolate was born on January 6, 1910 in Cuba. Chocolate defeated Benny Bass by TKO in the 7th round on July 15, 1931 to win the World Junior Lightweight Title. He later fought Tony Canzoneri for the World Lightweight Title, but was unsuccessful. "The Cuban Bon Bon" was one of the best in a long line of great Cuban fighters. Presented here is an extremely rare fight robe from that period belonging to Kid Chocolate. The robe is a full length brown silk with the words Chocolate Kid on the reverse. It was used in a number of his fights and would be classified as poor condition because of the considerable wear.This is one of the only pieces of fight equipment which belonged to this ring great to have ever surfaced and the lot also comes with a photograph of Chocolate wearing the robe. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
