1922 Large original photograph of boxing legend Jack Johnson as he appears in the ring with a white fighter he is helping train. Johnson himself was on the comeback trail at this stage in his career, recently released from prison, and was likely training other fighters to help raise money for himself to get back on his feet. An incredible photo with intense racial overtones, this is a high grade image that is being offered here for the first time ever fresh out of a newspaper archive!
