On September 27, 1950, Ezzard Charles did what so many before him couldn’t do: he out-boxed, out-maneuvered, outlasted and won a decision victory over the great Joe Louis, becoming the only man to go the full fifteen rounds with “The Brown Bomber” and win.

The match itself showed just what a master of The Sweet Science Charles was as he bested Louis in every facet of the fight. He beat the ex-champion to the punch while slipping the big bombs from Joe, punches that many before him had struggled to avoid. His footwork befuddled the bigger man and kept him off balance for most of the fight. He even had the Bomber in serious trouble and on the verge of a knockout in round 14, but Louis held on. The judges scored it unanimously: 10-5, 13-2 and 12-3.

Offered here is a full original fight ticket for this historic fight. This light purple ticket is for the Upper Box and has a face value of $10.00. The ticket exhibits some light to moderate handling wear along the edges and corners and stands in overall EX-MT to NM condition.
