By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

One of the great featherweights, that nobody talks about, is certainly Johnny Kilbane, a champion who held the title for eleven years (1912-1923) and fought the best of his era 다운로드.

Kilbane was born in a large Irish neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio on April 18, 1889 and began his professional career in November of 1907.

With only 33 fights under his belt, Kilbane fought the great Abe Attell who had 120 fights on his record;  Kilbane lost a ten round unanimous decision in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 24, 1910 다운로드.

The two would meet again three months later in a bout that would end in a four-round no-contest.

Archie Moore

By Jim Amato / Senior Boxing Writer / World Renowned Boxing Historian and Sports Collector / Contributor to since 2008

He was possibly the greatest light heavyweight of all time, The wily “Old Mongoose” Archie Moore 쏘우 3 다운로드. The man who scored 140 knockouts in a career that spanned from 1936 to 1963 never lost his crown in the ring.

Although he unsuccessfully challenged twice for the heavyweight title, he did campaign successfully among the “Big Boys” throughout his tenure as a professional boxer 캠핑클럽 5회 다운로드. His record reads like a “Who’s Who” of boxing history.

In 228 recorded bouts, Archie was only stopped seven times, a testimony to his courage and uncanny defensive ability 다운로드. Born on December 13, 1913 (or 1916 according to Archie), Moore boxed for years without due recognition. He fought all over the country. He even traveled to Australia and Argentina in search of fame and fortune Maxim download.

After six years on the circuit, Archie began to make his move toward the big time. In 1942, he knocked out Shorty Hogue in two rounds. Hogue had decisioned  Archie no less than three times earlier in his career 다운로드. He also beat rugged Jack Chase and drew with Ed Booker.

In 1943, he won two out of three against Chase, and in 1944, Moore lost by a knockout to Booker and also dropped a decision to the great Charley Burley.

John L. Sullivan

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

Many people have asked me about former heavyweight champion John L 듀드 시뮬레이터 다운로드. Sullivan. They say that there’s no footage of him and wonder how we can rate his greatness. Of course the footage isn’t there, and this is why we have historians, books, records and, most importantly, have had people who lived in his era with their assessments 다운로드.

I have not personally spoken to anyone from his era which is the late nineteenth century, but the oldest person I have ever had contact with who actually comes close would be boxing historian Al Nelson 아기 상어 다운로드. He goes back to Bob Fitzsimmons, who beat James J. Corbett to win the heavyweight title, and Corbett was the one who beat Sullivan for that title 다운로드.

When I was in high school back in the sixties, I wrote a book report on Sullivan and wish I could find that article piece. Who knows where it is today after all these years 투투 벨 다운로드?

In that article I will never forget my opening sentence:  “John L. Sullivan is the first American boxing icon, and he was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, on October 15, 1858.”

Sullivan’s fame in the boxing ring is remembered by many in boxing circles, even today a hundred and thirty years later.

Known as the “Boston Strong Boy”, Sullivan was as strong as they come, at 5’10” and weighing 190 pounds. In high school he excelled in baseball, boxing, and wrestling.

Because his mother wanted him to be a priest, he briefly attended Boston College. But from an early age, Sullivan showed a great proficiency with his fists.

At the turn of the 20th century, Brooklyn was becoming a thriving suburb of its own in the New York Metropolitan area 다운로드.

It was the home of the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, the Trolley Dodgers National League baseball team, and was also the home of “Terrible” Terry McGovern who had migrated there from Johnstown, Pennsylvania at the age of six 고릴라 게임.

The first fight for the Irish-American kid was at Brooklyn’s Jackson Club in early 1897, an amateur bout that ended in a first round victory over Jack Shea 실리콘 벨리 다운로드. That event would officially launch a stellar career in boxing for the young McGovern who turned pro that same year.

One of England’s greatest flyweight boxers was certainly Peter Kane 태교 음악 mp3 다운로드.  He was born in Heywood, Lancashire on February 28, 1918, but actually grew up living in Golborne, Lancashire.

Pete Herman was born in New Orleans on February 12, 1896 다운로드. He was one of the greatest bantamweights in boxing.

As a 12 year old kid Herman dreamed about becoming  a prize fighter while working as a shoeshine boy 다운로드.

Tyrone Everett

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

One of the best fighters that I have witnessed in my 59 years of involvement in boxing was junior lightweight Tyrone Everett 쇼미더머니777 4화 다운로드.

Unfortunately, these days his name is obscure and nobody talks much about him, let alone recalling many of his fights 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 성경듣기 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.

Mario D’Agata

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

There have been many handicaps to boxers in the ring – one eye, broken nose, severe cuts, ankle sprain, etc, but I must say the most debilitating handicaps has to be a deaf mute 다운로드.

Mario D’Agata, an Italian professional boxer, was the first and only world champion to be just that.

D’Agata was born on May 29, 1926 in Arezzo, Italy 튀어 나와요 동물 의 숲 다운로드. As a child he grew up with his disability, and was a prime target for teasing and taunting.  He would resort to prove himself by turning to street fighting to demonstrate his equality 라이브 7화 다운로드.

At a young age his parents moved him from Tuscany to Rome seeking help from doctors for a cure. It was there that he saw a boxing poster hanging outside a gym 다운로드. He peeked into the gym and was drawn to amazement of the boxers at that moment watching them train with such grace and perfection.

At the age of 20 years old he began to fight in amateur bouts, and recorded 90 wins in his 110 bouts 다운로드.

D’Agata turned pro on October 14, 1950. After assembling a ring record of 22 wins, 3 losses, 2 draws, on September 26, 1953 he would win the Italian Bantamweight title over Gianni Zuddas. 

After winning the Italian title, D’Agata would only lose one fight in his next 27 bouts. That only loss was to future world champion Robert Cohen by 10 round decision. He would reverse that loss in a rematch by 6th round knockout over Cohen on June 29, 1956 to win the world bantamweight championship.  The bout was held at the Foro Italico Soccer Stadium, Rome, Italy with over 38,000 fans in attendance. With the win, D’Agata made history as the world’s first deaf champion.

Muhammad Ali / Revisited … (Part #5 of 6)


By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

In part five of my six part series on Muhammad Ali, I would like to give you my personal view of ten incredible highlight facts during his boxing career:

1 ) Ali is the only one to have won the linear heavyweight championship three times 다운로드. The linear title is recognized by tracing an unbroken lineage of titleholders going back over 100 years, with every champion defeating the previous title holder in the ring 다운로드.

2 ) Ali has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine 37 times, second only to Michael Jordan.

3 ) According to many boxing historians, they rate Ali as the greatest heavyweight of all time 다운로드. In my personal rankings I rate Ali #1, just ahead of Joe Louis.
