Default Buster Keaton Promotes Boxing Collecting

I was watching a Buster Keaton clip on YouTube and suddenly noticed these boxing collectibles hung on the door. I'm not even sure which film this clip was from as it was a collection of his sight gags. Can you recognize any of the boxers and what set the item is from? If you want to check it out yourself, it's at 1:23 of this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWEjxkkB8Xs

I really felt like I recognized the bottom photo, but I just can't put my finger on it. I guess the middle photos would be about the size of a Turkey Red, but they don't look like they are from that series.

The top is the Leonard image from his 1921 Exhibit card, so I know that one real well.

I think the postcard size images between the two larger images are exhibit cards.
