Caption on reverse [translation]: "(New York) Domei. Pre-match expectations were undone in the Schmeling-Louis world heavyweight championship match which drew the attention of the world when rather than the expected Schmeling victory, 'Brown Bomber' Louis delivered a crushing defeat via technical knockout a mere two minutes, four seconds into the match. Photograph: Schmeling grabs the ropes as Louis' fierce punches raining down on him."

C. 1930s
