We love this The Veteran Boxer magazine cover about the sweet science of boxing with the headline “Harlem Tommy Murphy” Vs “Abe Attell” In Memorable 20 Round Draw On August 3 1912 At San Francisco Cal.
The text on the cover reads:

This Spectacle Regarded In The Laurels Of Ring History
As The Most Vicious And Bloodiest Of All

Murphy’s long career lasted from 1903 to 1919. He compiled a final record of 85 wins, 31 losses, and 26 draws.
