1930s & Earlier / Jack Johnson Vs James Jeffries
The most socially significant boxing match ever contested pitted world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson against former champ James Jeffries. Jeffries, who had hung up his gloves in 1904, had been coaxed out of retirement by big money to take on the cocky black champion in Reno, Nevada on July 4, 1910. The fight proved to be no contest as Johnson won easily. Race riots erupted all over the United States when the result was announced.
