A pre-War magazine aimed at fans of boxing, the most commonly found issue is the one focusing on Alvin Nelson, AKA the Red-Brick Kid. The magazine includes an exclusive eight-page feature in full color detailing the Kid's coming of age. It also covers the story of Everts' decision to defeat the Kid in the ring and a scandalous report on gambling in boxing, penned by Joe King.
