Corbett (1866-1933) defeated John L. Sullivan in a 21-round decision in New Orleans, Louisiana to become the World Heavyweight Champion in 1892. The fight was the first title bout in which boxing gloves were used. Corbett was champ until 1897 when Bob Fitzsimmons won a 14-round decision in Carson City, Nevada. The dapper and articulate Corbett, known as "Gentleman Jim", appeared on vaudeville stages and in several films of the 1920s.
