The Durable Dane twice held the World Lightweight Championship at a time when the division was packed with the greatest lightweights of all time. In one of the ring’s most memorable bouts, Nelson was repeatedly knocked down by Joe Gans, getting up each time to battle back. Nelson eventually lost the fight in the 42nd round on a “low blow” disqualification. His Turkey Red stands out from the crowd and shows ironic imagery, featuring a stadium filled with women. Outstanding color, corners and a lack of chipping make this an EX in every way!
