By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

In July 2007 when my website dmboxing.com  was officially born, I knew then that my friend Bob Quackenbush had to be a part of a small select group to make everything fit to its best 맨헌트.

Born Robert Harris Quackenbush and known to many as simply  “Quack” … Bob has been so very instrumental with expertise in proof reading and his deep photography background 다운로드. It’s such a blessing to have him as part of the dmboxing.com team.

It was Bob back then when I was looking for the right logo (with many suggestions submitted by others) was when he roamed around my personal boxing memorabilia and located an original autographed black and white photo of former heavyweight champion Max Baer, and which would become the fighter image that represents the website to perfection 핸드폰 배경화면 초고화질 다운로드.

I will say that Bob certainly has an eagle eye with photos, as prior to his retirement in 2016 at the Braille Institute,  he had previously worked for Tony Rose Camera and at Specialty Photographic Laboratories 다운로드.

David Martinez Interviewed By doghouseboxing.com

******* FLASHBACK *******

This article was originally published on dmboxing.com on December 22, 2011

David Martinez was recently interviewed by David Tyler, boxing writer for www.doghouseboxing.com 다운로드. We’ve been given permission to display that interview here. Enjoy!

David Tyler:  David, what qualifies someone as a boxing historian 동키콩 다운로드?
David Martinez:  Somebody that religiously, daily, every minute of their life, is passionately devoted to the sport of boxing.

DT:  How many years have you accumulated using your criteria as a historian 다운로드?
DM:  I have about 52 years.  It’s in my life, my DNA, that’s all I do.  My house is like a boxing museum.

DT:  I noticed that on your website is a posting of your top 12 boxers 엑자일 다운로드.  In alphabetical order:  Muhammad Ali, Henry Armstrong, Roberto Duran, Joe Gans, Harry Greb, Eder Jofre, Jack Johnson, Benny Leonard, Joe Louis, Carlos Monzon, Willie Pep, and Sugar Ray Robinson 컬투 쇼 다시 듣기 다운로드.  How did you decide these were the top 12?
DM:  That’s my personal opinion over 52 years. All of these fighters would be ‘all time’ greats.  My decisions were easy….let me give you an example from my top Heavyweights also on the website…. people question why I rate Jack Dempsey over Gene Tunney and bring up the fact that Tunney beat Dempsey twice.  I simply say this, ‘at the pinnacle of both of their careers, I believe that Dempsey was a better fighter than Tunney.’

DT:  James Corbett lost twice to James Jeffries.  Why do you rate Corbett higher than Jeffries?
DM:  Same logic…I think that at the pinnacle of his career, Corbett was a better fighter than Jeffries.  Here’s another example, I think that Joe Frazier was a better fighter than George Foreman at the pinnacle of his career even though Foreman beat him twice.

******* FLASHBACK *******

One of the best fighters that I have witnessed in my 59 years of involvement in boxing was junior lightweight Tyrone Everett 다운로드.

Unfortunately, these days his name is obscure and nobody talks much about him, let alone recalling many of his fights 프로듀스 x101 4화 다운로드.

Everett was born on April 18, 1953 in South Philadelphia 다운로드. He started his professional boxing career in September 1971 and would win all of his 34 bouts, propelling him to a world title match with Puerto Rican champion Alfredo Escalera on November 30, 1976 – Escalera’s 7th defense of the 130 pound title  다운로드.  Scheduled for 15 rounds, the fight took place at the Spectrum in Philadelphia for the WBC Super Featherweight Championship.  A crowd of 16,109 packed the Spectrum, which is still a record for the largest number of spectators at a Pennsylvania indoor boxing match 다운로드.

During the fight, Everett would show Escalera his artistic boxing skills, winning most of the rounds handily . Escalera’s best round was definitely the fifth as his signature right hand punches rocked the southpaw Everett. What was amazing, though, was that Everett stayed on the outside and boxed beautifully, never losing his composure in that round.

Shorty Padilla – Not To Be Forgotten

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

As a young boy back in the early 1960’s, I met an older man who intrigued me 다운로드. He would come in to get his haircuts at my father’s barber shop – his name was Tim Cobos.

He knew boxing very well from his era which started in the 1920’s 다운로드. I never forgot that he told me the three greatest boxers he had ever seen (I can’t remember the order) were Benny Leonard, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Joe Louis 능엄신주. Those were his greatest, but his favorite was a local Santa Barbara, California boxer, Albert Lopez Padilla, who was nicknamed Shorty.

Tim knew Shorty personally and attended many of his fights from 1946 to 1949 다운로드. Shorty fought at such Southern California venues as the historic Los Angeles Olympic Auditorium, Santa Monica Ocean Park Arena, San Diego Coliseum, San Bernardino Arena, Whittier Arena / Pico Rivera, and the Mission Arena in Santa Barbara 컴퓨터 바둑게임 다운로드.

Shorty was born in Pueblo, Colorado, on May 19, 1925, the youngest of four brothers and one sister. His family migrated from city to city to earn a living. They settled in Brawley for a time and in 1928 made their home in Goleta, California, a small community north of Santa Barbara.
