Boxing and Billiards News


Two new original paintings are selling this evening at auction. The boxer is Sam Langford, owner of a thousand snappy nicknames. “The Bone Crusher” may have been the most apt–126 of his 180 wins were by knockout.

Born in Toulouse, France, in 1869, this suave player was recognized as an “artist” of the game. His touch was said to be nuanced; he played the game with a rare intelligence.

Billiard tables within the framework of a small card make for some seemingly awkward poses but that is part of the fun for us.

Both paintings are being auctioned tonight Here.
