chinchekked spot on...
If you even dared blinnk he'd take your money = Ikes manager was "Blinky" Palermo was a mobster and a corrupt guy known to spend fighters money.
Going thru the list of opponents and guys I beat is endless = 150+ fights
First major title from one of Mexicos finest = Won the NBA Lightweight title when he defeated Juan Zurita
Durango Puncher = Enrique Bolanos nickname
a cat = Bob Mongtomerys nickname was Bobcat
a child = Kid Gavilan
What wasn't fixed was the onslaught I laid on a dandy = In his first fight vs. Beau Jack he throws 45+ unanswered shots until the referee finally jumps in (The worst LATE stoppage ever in my opinion)
dandy = Beau
