Title from sculpture and plate on base of sculpture.
A full-length standing figure of a boxer carved in wood by Leslie Garland Bolling. He incised the title "The Boxer" in the front edge of the surface on which the figure stands, and "Sept. 13th 33" and "LGBolling" on the back edge. A metal plate attached to the front of the base gives the title as "Wild Cat," the ring name of an unidentified boxer in Richmond, Virginia, who posed for Bolling.
