Trump posthumously pardons Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion
By Adam Shaw | Fox News


President Trump on Thursday granted a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion, after being urged to do so by “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone.

"It's my honor to do it. It's about time," Trump said during an Oval Office ceremony.

Johnson, born in Galveston, Texas, was the target of racial resentment, particularly after he defeated white boxer James Jeffries in the 1910 “Fight of the Century,” a bout that sparked race riots.
