A PC depicting a Battle Royal in Watongah, OK. Antebellum battles royal often appeared on the undercard of boxing matches with several blindfolded slaves fighting a last man standing format with the owner of the winner receiving a prize. After abolition, battles royal remained in the cards at Jim Crow events, albeit with gloves and the winner keeping his prize. Jack Johnson, Beau Jack and Joe Gans all fought them.
