Four page program with advertisements. Championship of Johnnie Sudenberg of Omaha vs. Kid Boss of Great Falls. Sudenberg would be a young Jack Dempsey's first Nevada fight in Goldfield in 1919. They would emerge friends. And Dempsey remembers it as one of his toughest fights he ever had. "Dempsey never had a “boxing match” with anyone in his life. It was always a fight. He began talking about one of the fights, one of the toughest. It was a ‘fight he lost to a roughneck puncher named Johnny Sudenberg in Goldfield, Nevada, in 1915.
