Joe Louis Framed Display with an Ad for the Billy Conn Fight That Didn’t Happen.

Lot 594. Joe Louis Framed Display with an Ad for the Billy Conn Fight That Didn’t Happen. In a June 18, 1941 fight for the World Heavyweight Championship at New York’s Polo Grounds, Louis almost lost to Conn. Through 12 rounds, Conn led Louis on the cards of two of the three scorers. Against the advice of his trainer, Conn continued to pursue Louis closely and aggressively. Although exhausted, Louis managed to knock Conn out with two seconds left in the 13th round. The two boxers were scheduled to meet again on Oct. 12, 1942. A 4.5” x 6” promotion that is part of this display focuses on the bout. But the fight was canceled after Conn broke his hand in a fight with his father-in-law. World War II kept the two fighters from meeting again until 1946. Matted and framed to 9” x 10.75”, the display also features a coin 1.5” in diameter with Louis’ image and the 1993 U.S. postage stamp issued in Louis’ honor. Winning Bid $20.
