The origin of this figure must be seen in the context of the famous boxing match between Sullivan and James John 'Gentleman Jim' Corbett, in which Corbett beat Sullivan in the 21st round at the Olympic Club of New Orleans on September 7, 1892, thus becoming the world heavyweight champion

The Sculptures both bear the signature of the incised artist "Waagen" on the base. They are both in good antique condition, and sit upon a wooden plinth.

The sculptor Arthur Waagen spent most of his life in Paris and exhibited in the Salons of 1861 and 1887. He was mainly known for his animal sculptures.
