Gasper “El Indio” Ortega


By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

I have been truly blessed and fortunate to have met the greatest of the greats in boxing since my involvement in the sport that started back in 1961 스플린터셀 다운로드.

Sugar Ray Robinson tops my list of the many, but I have to say that one of the nicest boxers I have had the pleasure to meet was certainly top welterweight contender Gasper Ortega 다운로드.

He had an amazing 44 fights televised nationally (great exposure in those days), and I remember as a young boy watching him many times on our black and white television set with my father in our living room 록맨9.

I remember seeing him enter the ring wearing an Indian head dress, as he was half Native American and half Mexican.

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  리모콘 어플.

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  영어책 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  7공주 mp3 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  유안타증권 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.

There is a boxer that nobody ever talks about these days 우주좀비 다운로드. A boxer who seems to have been lost in the fog of time, but whom I rate as one of the finest to ever come out of Chicago!

40th Anniversary – FIGHT OF THE CENTURY

*** FLASHBACK *** This article was originally published for viewing exactly 13 years ago (March 5, 2011) on

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian

As we approach this week in boxing, something that will forever live in the sport happened forty years ago: Muhammad Ali vs  e스토어. Joe Frazier – the FIGHT OF THE CENTURY. On March 8, 1971, the boxing world saw the most eagerly anticipated championship fight that I have ever been involved with in my fifty years in boxing 스미싱 다운로드.

The fight itself exceeded even its own promotional hype between two fighters unbeaten and having contrasting styles. They both had legitimate claims to the heavyweight title, Ali as lineal champion (31-0 / 25 by KO) and Frazier as the undisputed heavyweight champion (26-0 / 23 by KO)  kt biz say download. The guaranteed purses were 2.5 million dollars to each, then a record for a single prize fight.

I will always remember where I was on that Monday night, watching on closed circuit, at the historic Granada Theater, Santa Barbara, California  윈도우10 홈 다운로드.

The fight took place at Madison Square Garden, New York City, with a star studded audience. The ringside commentators were Don Dunphy and Archie Moore, and my late friend Arthur Mercante served as the referee 다운로드.

Remembering Three Icons of Boxing

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

In the past sixty-three years, starting in January 1961 when my taste and passion for boxing was ignited, I have met many boxers and other interesting people 레지던트 이블 파멸의 날.

There were three that intrigued me with their amazing knowledge of the history of the sport, and we became great friends whom I will never forget Ms office access download. They were (R.I.P.) Al Nelson, Don Fraser and Harold Lederman.


Al was curator of the Jeffries Museum Barn located at Knott’s Berry Farm 스토브리그 8회 다운로드. I came to know him through my friend, Gary Ballin, in the late 1960’s. Nelson was a living icon and boxing historian from the turn of the 20th Century in the Jim Jeffries, Jack Johnson, and Bob Fitzsimmons era ubuntu 16.04 lts. I would take it upon myself to make many visits, driving the 200 plus round-trip miles from my Santa Barbara home to visit him in Buena Park, California 공장초기화. He was certainly a wealth of boxing history, and I treasured the times with him and the education he gave me from his life experiences.

I remember a few highlights from our talks. He stated that Bob Fitzsimmons was the hardest puncher of his time, that Jim Corbett was a complete master in the ring and, although Jim Jeffries was his favorite, Jack Johnson at his prime was the best of the heavyweights.

Just before he passed away, Al gave me photos and booklets; but the greatest gift, besides his friendship, was an original cigar box cover circa 1900 with the image of undefeated heavyweight champion Jim Jeffries on it.
