"Jeff's long left kept the rushing Sharkey at a safe distance..."

A fantastic sketch from The Ring magazine, July 1944.

Jeffries and Sharkey: one of the greatest fightin' friendships ever. 

They were ring rivals at the height of their success and friends for 50 years. 

They died within a few weeks of each other in 1953.
