Dealer Notes
A very scarce print of a historic boxing event. Jimmy Wilde outpointed Joe Lynch on 31st March 1923 at the National Sporting Club. The print is from a painting by W. H. Robinson done in 1923 which is the date that appears on the print under the printed signature.
At the end the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), in military uniform, stepped into the ring and congratulated Wilde on his victory. This was the first time Royalty officially entered the ring and thereby had given their official patronage to boxing.
