    I'd also guess that the Mexican greats, Barrera, Marquez and morales, must have won in four weight classes or at least very close to it, I'd have to look it up though.

    QUESTION I DON'T KNOW

    Packey McFarland is considered one of the greats to never win a title, with one loss in his career.

    However boxrec claims no losses
    https://boxrec.com/en/proboxer/36384

    Was he 70-1-5
    or
    70-0-5

    Arce for sure, good vid, one who goes under the radar most often. Donaire too and I think Macho Camacho came up short at welter at the hand(s) of Trinidad.

    Boom and boom on Marquez and Morales. Barrera off by one but always crazy to remember he turned pro at flyweight at 15 friggin years old!

    Yeah, you're right. I don't know why I thought his 2nd fight with Duran was a title fight. Probably just remembered the announcer saying championship boxing, not for a championship.

    Referee, called the bout at 1 minute of the 5th round; Ortiz had been warned about biting, but had continued to do so. The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended Ortiz after getting DQ'd


    Ring magazine 1980 stated: Ortiz next fight was with a Milton Owens 26-1 in a clinch, Owen bit Ortiz. Ortiz bit him back- but the ref let the fight continue. The best biter won Milton Owens
    I was going back through time and I noticed your mention of biters and I thought I should add Ossie Ocasio(Jaws}. It was a fun catch and reminder there's always more fun on the realm. He also fought Larry Holmes but his teeth was kept in check that evening on Wide World of sports.

    How Demarcus Corley became "chop-chop"
    Manny Stewart stated in the amateurs the poor kid would gobble his meal down causing instant weight gain, so Manny stated they had to tell him Marcus, chew your food. chop it up, then chew it!

    If that's so, what a funny means about getting a nickname!

    Yes Brendan Ingle once said to Jonny Nelson , think of something you will never be and chose it as your nickname.

    Hence - Jonny "The Entertainer " Nelson.
    Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .

    Jackie Frazier played basketball before boxing and was One of AU’s top all-time scorer. Their first female basketball player to reach the 1,000-points and ranked 12th on AU’s all-time scoring list with 1,106 points.
    She averaged 12.7 points per game in her career and registered 72 steals during the 1981-82 season, which was second-best ever at AU at the time.
    https://aueagles.com/sports/2019/8/15/x-evurg.aspx


    Haven't found any footage yet.

    And how she got her nickname? She invited Ali to speak at a youth center, to which he obliged. As soon as Jackie introduced herself, she said Ali stood in silence for a moment, smiled and said, WOW, Sister Smoke!


    Laila Ali's daddy gave Jackie her boxing name!

    Nope it was actually Ad Wolgast. Guy had elevated boots ffs! They designed them special with old tires, even had to add ropes to the ring so the little fooker didn't tumble under the bottom rope. Named one of his best punches the 'Kangaroo clanger' as he'd time the right hand and take a running start with it just to land clean! Unheard of.



    Ok I'm full of shat you got it. Good call man

    A Trophy would be named after this fighter. The 1st contested bout ended in a draw.

    Who fought for it and what fighter was the trophy named after?
