Herriman Saturday: May 17 1910


May 17 1910 — The boxing world has not come to a standstill while awaiting the Fight of the Century. Lew Powell and George Memsic are set to meet in the ring on the 21st. It’s not a championship fight, but Memsic and Powell are both famous enough fighters that there’s plenty of interest.

As Herriman’s cartoon shows, many luminaries are in town to see the fight, including promoter Tom McCarey, fighters like Jeff Perry and England’s Owen Moran, and actor DeWitt Van Court.
