As World War II battles waged across the globe, the hallowed Chicago Stadium staged a Middleweight championship bout between contenders Jake LaMotta and Lou Woods. Upping his mark to an impressive 43-7-2 that night, LaMotta floored the Army Sergeant twice. This full ticket and announcement were issued for that March 31, 1944 ring confrontation. These rare pugilism artifacts include: Ticket printed on thick stock, the crisp, crease-free voucher lists the combatants, date and venue and is affected by a thin vertical stain; Announcement typewritten on “Chicago Stadium Corporation” letterhead, the memo lists the event, prices and near-west side purchase locations. The sheet shows amazing preservation with no folds or creases.
