In the boxing context Tommy Burns was a world heavyweight champion who was the first white boxer to agree to fight a black boxer for the world title. On Boxing Day 1908 he lost his title to Jack Johnson who became the first ever black heavyweight champion of the world. Johnson was not the first black champion as many books say. tHAT HONOUR GOES TO First Black man to win a world boxing title; held three world boxing titles: paperweight, bantamweight and featherweight; invented shadow boxing and the suspended punching bag; fought in the world's longest fight.
Jack Johnson. Not the singer, the black heavyweight champion of the world. Dates back to the roaring 20's I believe.
