June 22, 1937 – Jim Braddock vs. Joe Louis Boxing Fight Working Press Pass Badge (Held at Comiskey Park)

Joe Louis 197¼ lbs beat Jim Braddock 197 lbs by KO in round 8 of 15 In the first minute of round 1 they started to exchange and Braddock managed to get a right uppercut in Louis’s chin and knocked him down briefly, but Louis went on to dominate the rest of the bout all the way to the eighth round where Louis’s left to the body and a hard right to the chin knocked Braddock down heavily. The referee counted him out at 1:10 of the eighth round while he was lying on the canvas lifelessly.

Joe Louis was the only person who managed to knock him out. He had been knocked down only twice before in his career and both times he had got up to win. Joe Gould wanted to stop the bout in the rest period between the 7th and the 8th round since Braddock was bleeding severely and his face was swollen badly. Braddock later said after the fight: “When he hit me with that left-right combination I could’ve stayed down on the canvas for three weeks”.
