About this object
This black and white photograph shows professional light heavyweights Jackie Marr and Roy Stevens fighting in the feature fight of a boxing tournament outside Mataura School on 8 May 1948. The tournament was organised by Constable Jim Brazier of Mataura as a community fund raiser. Brazier helped bring Jackie Marr to Mataura in 1947 and 1948 to fight NZ title holders. These fights, plus raffle sales netted enough money to buy and equip a new gym for Mataura.
