This is an original page from a magazine titled "Picture of the Week" "The end comes for a champion" The article starts: "Last week, 20 million people ...saw Joe Louis get whipped. They saw him outboxed and out-thought and outpunched by 29-year-old Ezzard Charles, a fighter Louis would have quickly destroyed 10 years ago." It's about 10.5 x 14 inches and I'm assuming it came from a Life Magazine from 1950. The back has an article about Tom Murphy, titled "Cops, gamblers politicos shiver" - "...the prodding prosecutor who had made a name for himself by winning the conviction of Alger Hiss." In very good condition, with just slight roughness to the left side where it was removed from a magazine.
