Former World Heavyweight Champion Jack Sharkey, steps into the ring one final time. His opponent, "The Brown Bomber" Joe Louis, who was coming off a recent loss to Max Schmeling. More info below... Jack Sharkey was a 12 year veteran and a former World Heavyweight Champion. Sharkey turned pro in 1924 and quickly established himself as a tough as nails heavyweight contender who never backed down from a fight. Sharkey took on all comers early on and although he didn't always win, he was quickly developing as a boxer due to the experience of facing much more seasoned fighters such as Charley Weinert, Jack Renault, Jim Maloney and Johnny Risko. In 1926 Sharkey had his big breakthrough win when he beat talented black fighter and former World "Colored" Heavyweight Champion, Harry Wills. Wills had been undefeated for 4 years at the time and had been widely considered since the early 1920's as the number 1 contender for Jack Dempsey's heavyweight title but due to the "color line" was unsuccessful in securing a fight with the Champ. Sharkey dominated the fight from the opening bell, smashing Wills around the ring and eventually forcing a disqualification win. Sharkey had made a statement and was now considered a serious heavyweight threat. Following TKO wins over Mike McTigue and Jim Maloney, Sharkey got the opportunity to fight his boxing idol, Jack Dempsey, for the right to face the new World Heavyweight Champion, Gene Tunney. Sharkey showed skill and power against Dempsey early on however Sharkey made a fatal mistake by dropping his guard during round 7 as he complained to the ref about a low blow. Dempsey saw the opening and took it, flattening Sharkey with a left hook to the jaw. Sharkey got another chance to become challenger for Tunney's World title when he was paired against tough New Zealand fighter Tom Heeney to decide the number 1 contender, however the fight ended in a disappointing draw followed by an even more disappointing 15 round split decision loss to Johnny Risko 2 months later. Sharkey would bounce back however and went undefeated in his next 7 fights which included claiming the American Heavyweight title when he beat Tommy Loughran in 1929. In 1930 Sharkey was handpicked to face Max Schmeling for the now vacant World Heavyweight title but he lost via a controversial disqualification in round 4, a fight which Sharkey was winning. Sharkey got his rematch with Schmeling in 1932 and won the World Heavyweight title via a controversial 15 round decision, this time a fight many felt Max Schmeling had won. Sharkey's reign at the top was very brief, as in his first defense a year later, he was knocked out by the giant like Primo Carnera with some fans claiming it was a fix. Regardless, Sharkey's career never recovered as he went on to lose fights against King Levinsky, Tommy Loughran and Tony Shucco. In his last fight Sharkey earned a points win over Phil Brubaker, however he had been knocked down himself in the process. His record was 37-12-3. Joe Louis was coming off his first career loss at the hands of Max Schmeling to give him a 24-1 record. Sharkey was picked as the opportune opponent to get Louis' career back on an immediate trajectory as Sharkey 4 years prior had beaten Schmeling, the man who was now poised to be the number 1 contender for the Heavyweight title. If Louis could beat Sharkey, he could make a claim for a rematch against Schmeling...

Former middleweight champion Mickey Walker was reaching the peak of his career when he fought future Heavyweight Champion Jack Sharkey to a 15 round draw in 1931, though AP at ringside had Sharkey the winner. Sharkey went on to with the Heavyweight Championship the following year, and though Walker had several more victories ahead, he was knocked out by Max Schmeling in 1932, ending his heavyweight champaign. Film & Restoration The film of the Walker-Sharkey fight was one of the poorest of the era. The high view over Sharkey's corner is at an angle that makes the action difficult to follow. In addition, this print, taken from the master was badly overexposed. Worst of all, the camera was pointed so low that Sharkey and Walker's heads are often above the frame. As it turns out, the actual picture frame is larger than what viewers see. This is called "Overscan". It means the TV or film projector automatically covers the outer portion of the film frame obscuring the edges. This makes the picture look clean all the way around. In the case of the Walker-Sharkey film, there was more picture at the top of the screen to work with. After transferring the film with the top frame all the way down, I edited a new version of this film with a slightly better top view. The fighters are still obscured much of the time, but it better than the neck high view that's been seen up to now. More from The Fight Film Collector: http://fightfilmcollector.blogspot.com/
