MAX SCHMELING
Black and white publicity photograph of World Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis knocking out Max Schmeling in the first round of their 1938 rematch at Yankee Stadium
Photograph signed: "Max Schmeling". B/w, 8x10 overall, three 4¾x3 images (one surface). In the three photographs, taken seconds apart, World Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis knocks out Max Schmeling (1905-2005) in the first round of their 1938 rematch at Yankee Stadium. Max Schmeling had became World Heavyweight Champion in 1930,when he defeated Jack Sharkey for the title vacated by Gene Tunney in 1928. In 1932, Sharkey won the title in a 15-round decision over Schmeling. In 1936, in a non-title bout, Schmeling scored a twelfth round knockout of the previously undefeated Joe Louis. Despite Nazi efforts to promote him as a symbol of Aryan supremacy, Schmeling refused Hitler's personal request to join the Nazi party and secretly protected German Jews at great risk to himself. A Coca Cola executive after World War II, Schmeling became a close friend of Joe Louis and served as a pallbearer at Louis' funeral (1981). Fine condition.
