This is the Signed unique original Gouache painting by Ralph Bruce.

The End of an Era: King of the Bare-Knuckle Boxers. After his meteoric boxing career, John L. Sullivan loved to make speeches and spent money on a vast scale.

Sullivan defeated Jake Kilrain at the start of round 76 out of 80 in that last bare-knuckle championship fight. His second threw in the towel believing Kilrain would have died had he continued. Signed off the lower right section of the image.

From Look and Learn no. 620 (1 December 1973).
