PORTRAIT OF FRENCH WRESTLER OR BOXER : 1920’S : RPPC

This vintage real photo postcard features a boxer, or possibly a wrestler, in a fighting pose. He is not wearing any boxing gloves which leads me to believe that he is more likely a wrestler. One thing is certain; I know that he is not a UFC fighter. The boxer is unidentified. The postcard is likely from France, since similar boxing postcards in my collection are from that nation. This postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition (see scans).
