Tommy McGinty, 1911

Tommy McGinty, 1911
Tommy McGinty began boxing professionally in Cleveland in 1909 at age 17. He trained under and was managed by Jimmy Dunn, who also trained and managed world featherweight boxing champion Johnny Kilbane. McGinty was a promising featherweight boxer, but his boxing career was cut short by an injury he suffered in a boxing match in 1911. This photo was taken in that same year.
