Default Re: Peter Maher In The Modern HW Scene

Senya and Matt are right. That is not Maher-Fitzsimmons.

I dont know how that photo got incorrectly identified but it is correctly identified on a very old tobacco card as Kelly-Smith in El Paso.

The dead giveaway would be that no canvas wall can be seen in the background. A canvas wall was erected around the fight ground of the Fitzsimmons-Maher bout to keep out non paying customers. This can be seen in vintage photographs of the contest.

I strongly recommend: Dan Stuarts Fistic Carnival which deals with this fight.
