    In December 1911, William Thomas Wells fought Fred Storbeck at Covent Garden for the British Empire Heavyweight Title, scoring a knockout in the eleventh round to gain his second title in one year.

    Fred Storbeck (1889-1970) was a South African heavyweight. Most of his career he fought in the U.K., in Australia, or in his native country. Here's his bout list page at boxer.com. The only American fight listed is his July 8, 1912 bout against Jim Stewart at Madison Square Garden (Storbeck lost.) My guess would be that this photo probably dates from that time.
