Boxing Action with Henry Armstrong and Barney Ross

Original caption: New York: Barney Sidesteps Henry's Left--Chicago's Barney Ross found feather champ Henry Armstrong's machine gun punching too much to handle as they met at Madison Square Garden Bowl tonight with Barney's welterweight title at stake. The St. Louis whirlwind decisively copped the fifteen round decision. This shot, made early in the fight, shows Barney sidestepping one of Henry's wicked lefts.
