    Tommy West 1900 Fight Worn Gloves From The Jack Bonner Bout Tommy West was born in 1870 and fought as a professional fighter in various weights at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. West was never a champion, but retired with victories over such ring greats as Barbados Joe Walcott, Jack Bonner, Philadelphia Jack O'Brien and George Byers. Presented here are the brown and beige gloves used by Tommy West in his 16 round victory over Jack Bonner in New York on April 6, 1900. The gloves have no laces and there is some leather loss on the left hand glove. The gloves originated from the collection of trainer Jimmy DeForest and were procured from one of his relatives. These gloves include the original pencil tag which is stuck in the left glove identifying them as the gloves West used when he fought Bonner. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports .
