Default Heavyweight Tournament for Joe Louis

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Page 8 of this paper near the bottom.

It mentions an article of Charles, Walcott, Ray, Oma, Maxim and a Jim Ritchie, being involved in an elimination series for Louis title.

Can anyone shed any more light on this?

Don't think I have heard of this 'tournament' before.

Not sure who was listed, but something was billed as the American Heavyweight
Elimination Tournament.
Not sure if it ever got off the ground.

It got off the ground, if it is indeed the right tournament, but it never finished then.
