West Coast publication which was published to serve as a souvenir fight program for the various Boxing & Wrestling promotions in the area on that particular week. In many cases this was the only program issued for the fights listed. I believe this was probably distributed at the various fight venues and also at news-stands in the immediate area.
SIZE - About 9 1/4" x 12 1/8" inches. Somewhat larger format then a standard magazine. About 16 pages including covers.

A great lot for the vintage boxing program and memorabilia collector.
