Jack Johnson vs. Sam McVey - Pair of Beautiful pieces of Large Pastel artwork by Robert Carson
Jack Johnson vs. Sam McVey
April 22nd, 1904 in San Francisco, California
4 years before he would win the World's title from Tommy Burns a 26 year-old Jack Johnson was busy defending his American Black Heavyweight Title against an 18 year-old Sam McVey for the 3rd time in a year in San Francisco. Johnson would win all three fights in 20 rounds each against the teenager and future Hall of Famer but would purposely avoid him for the rest of his career. Johnson claimed McVey hit harder then anybody he ever fought and he admitted ducking him as McVey matured into his body.
