1930s & Earlier / Jack Johnson Vs Tommy Burns 1908
On December 26, 1908, in Sydney, Australia, Jack Johnson became the first black fighter to win the world heavyweight title. He defeated Canada's Tommy Burns, the reigning champ, in 14 rounds. The clip ends just before the police intervened to halt the one-sided contest. They also shut off the movie cameras to ensure Burns' moment of defeat wouldn't be preserved on film.
