Lightweight Benny Leonard, often called the Ghetto Wizard because of his Jewish descent, is regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time. He won the lightweight title from Britain's Freddie Welsh in 1917 and held it until he retired after this fight, his second against Lew Tendler, on 24-July-1923. "Shown now at the following leading theaters in New York." At this time fight films could not be distributed to other states.
Leonard won a unanimous decision in 15 rounds at Yankee Stadium.
He came out retirement in 1932, fought once and lost.
Tendler was a southpaw who was good, but never won a title.
