Item specifics



Produt Type:




Offered here is a Press Photo Arturo Godoy weighing in at Troy [NY] Arena, approx 8" X 10". This photo came from a huge accumulation of Troy, N.Y. ephemera - paper is glued to the bottom.  Will be shipped in plastic top-loader and between stiff cardboard with delivery confirmation.

Arturo Godoy was a Chilean boxer born in Iquique, Chile, in 1910. He died of cancer in Chile in 1987.
He was South American Heavyweight Champion and had an extensive and successful career in Argentina, Cuba, Spain, and the United States roughly between 1931 and 1954.
In New York he beat Tony Galento.
He is best known for his two epic fights with Joe Louis for the World Heavyweight Championship in 1940. The first was held at the Madison Square Garden on February 10, 1940 and went the full length of 15 rounds. The 2 ringside judges split their votes and the tie was broken by the referee, who gave it to Louis, to the protest of a substantial part of the audience, who had been won over by the fact that Godoy showed no fear of Louis and by the additional fact that Louis was not able to knock out his opponent after a string of K.O.s and T.K.O.s. South Americans and Chileans in particular thought that Godoy had indeed won the fight and from then on the figure of Godoy acquired mythical proportions. A second fight was scheduled for June 20, 1940. Joe Louis prepared to counteract Godoy's strategy and ring tactics, focusing on bringing him up from his unusual low stance with a combination of hooks to the body and uppercuts. Godoy fought bravely but the referee had to stop the fight in the 8th round. Godoy continued fighting until 1954 and returned to Chile, where he was regarded as a hero. His life was used as the base for the novel "Muriendo por la dulce patria mía" (Planeta, 1998) by Roberto Castillo Sandoval.   http://www.wikiboxing.org/Arturo_Godoy

PLEASE leave positive feedback - I always do.

Please be sure to check our store, Myers Collectibles, where we have thousands of items listed.

Each week we list Over 100 Antique & Collectibles for sale! Always some superb items, low opening bid and no reserve! You might want to keep us as a "favorite seller" and check back often on our offerings - you'll always find something special.

We do discount shipping costs for multiple purchases.

Shipping Procedures I pride myself on quick shipping.  I usually ship on Mondays, Wednesdays and on Fridays except on holidays. Once a package is in the Postal Service hands, I loose control over it. Generally for US shipments you can expect delivery within 3 or 4 business days (or 3-9 for media rate). For non-US shipments, once the package leaves the US, even the USPS looses control over it. I can not predict transit times for these packages. They quite often are held up in customs in the receiving country. Please be patient.

All Payments are due in our hands within 7 days of purchase.  No exceptions unless authorized by us in advance!

Sign up for PayPal; the fast, easy, and secure way to pay online.

I never use second chance offers as there are too many fraudulent people out there trying to copy successful sales. If you get an email with a second chance offer it is not from me and is therefore not genuine so send it to ebay for them to handle.
