Brisco Celebrates with Boesch in Houston

Promoter Paul Boesch hugs Jack Brisco who had just defeated Harley Race for the
NWA World Championship. 

One of my favorite magazine photos from Houston the night Jack Brisco defeated Harley Race for the NWA world championship. The date was July 20, 1973.

Brisco is being hugged by promoter Paul Boesch. Boesch holds a camera in his left hand. He took many photos in the ring after that match, several of which were given to Harley Race who provided them for use in the book "Ten Pounds of Gold" which documents that historic night in Houston.

Also in the photo are ring announcer Boyd Pierce and despondent Harley Race.
