I had a slight reservation about the accompanying identification, but I am unfamiliar with the area. On the off-chance that the LAPL identification is somewhat correct, were there any outdoor boxing venues in the Santa Clarita area in the '20s-'30s?

The pictured venue has the earmarks of permanency, but maybe it was erected for a few events and dismantled. Curiously, at least one source links Dempsey with Saugus, so perhaps this is more than just wishful thinking?

Circa '37

Nearby Newhall, circa 1950

Circa 1930
