    Default James Braddock vs. Art Lasky ~ '1935 Heavyweight Eliminator'

    Friday ~ March 22, 1935

    Madison Square Garden ~ New York City, New York

    ~ 15-Round Heavyweight Eliminator ~

    James Braddock - 43-23-4 {26 KO's} ~ 6' 2 1/2" ~ Reach; 76" ~ 182 1/4 lbs. ~ {Age; 29 years, 9 months}
    vs.
    Art Lasky - 33-2-3 {29 KO's} ~ 6' 4' ~ Reach; 76" ~ 197 lbs. ~ {Age; 26 years, 4 months}
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    ~ The Skinny ~

    James Braddock has moved up to the #9 Heavyweight in the Ratings, following 'upset wins'
    over Top 10 Light-Heavyweights > John 'Corn' Griffin, and John Henry Lewis.

    But despite the wins, the 'Jersey-Boy' Braddock is a 'solid underdog' here at {3-1}.

    Art Lasky is a 4 1/2 year Professional, who has very good boxing skiils. The 6' 4" tall fighter
    has a 76" reach, and has a good 'spearing' left-hand.

    From Minnesota, Lasky moved out to Hollywood, California in October 1933, and has been a West-Coast
    campaigner.

    Between June 1933 and October 1934, Lasky went 'unbeaten' with a record of 13-0-1 with {10 KO's},
    including scoring a Decision win over King Levinsky.

    But, in his last 2-bouts, Lasky was 'upset' by Steve Hamas by a 10-Round Split-Decision on
    October 5, 1934 > and he was held to a 10-Round Draw by King Levinsky on November 23, 1934.

    Still, despite those last 'two-blemishes', Lasky is a solid {3-1} Betting-Favorite and the next
    expected Challenger for World Champion - Max Baer.

    Though Lasky has {29 KO's} in his '33-Wins', he is not regarded as a big-puncher.

    ~ The Original Date ~

    This bout was 'originally' set for Saturday - February 2, 1935.

    It was billed as > 'The Broad-Backed Irishman' vs. 'The Minneapolis Hebrew'

    But Art Lasky came down with the 'Flu' and the bout was postponed.

    Earlier in January 1935, there was a 'concerted effort' to sign up Max Baer to defend
    his Title against Lasky, as he was clearly 'ready' for a 15-Rounder. A March 1935 date
    was planned.

    Other Top Heavyweights were;
    * Max Schmeling
    * Steve Hamas
    * Primo Carnera {former Champion}.

    Without a doubt,

    One tough Son-of-a-Bitch. Got his strength working as a Longshoreman on the Docks in
    New Jersey.
