    Fight of the day. Savage and brutal but part of boxing history and a glaring reminder of the risk.

    1962: Emile Griffith vs Benny (Kid) Paret



    1899: Kid Mc Coy W 20 Joe Choynski, San Francisco.

    1924: Harry Greb KO 12 Fay Kaiser, Baltimore. Retains World Middleweight Title.

    1932: Billy Petrolle KO 12 Battling Battalino, NYC. Referee: Ed Smith.
    A crowd of 18,000 watched as “Petrolle cut Battalino to pieces with vicious rights and lefts to the head, brought blood streaming from a dozen cuts, and finally stopped him after one minute and 31 seconds of the twelfth and final round. Two smashing punches to the body made Battalino sway. Another volley to the head sent him reeling into the ropes. Still he refused to go down but he was obviously out on his feet and Referee Gunboat Smith stepped in and awarded the fight to Petrolle on a technical knockout.”
    (AP).

    1938: Benny Lynch D 15 Peter Kane, Liverpool. Retains World Flyweight Title.

    1962: Emile Griffith KO 12 Benny (Kid) Paret, NYC. Regains World Welterweight Title. Paret dies 10-days later as a result of the battering he received. This would be the grief stricken Ruby Goldstein’s last fight as a referee.

    Can a Mod @Master or @Andre or @Memphis sticky this thread? It is a work of love, substance and stamina. If not then fair enough, can it at least get an award or something.

    Honourable mention?

    Get that man, many,many beers.
