The following entry was merged from another thread into this one.

Jack Britton (1885-1962)
Former 3-time World Welterweight Champion f, who was born as William J. Breslin in Clinton, New York. His professional career lasted for 25 years beginning in 1905. He finished with 104 wins, 27 losses and 21 draws including 28 KOs and another 190 fights that ended in "no decision". He holds the world record for the number of title bouts fought in a career. 37 (18 of which ended in no decisions), many against his arch-rival Ted "Kid" Lewis.
Titles Held
• World Welterweight Title Jack won it in 1915 but lost it next fight.
• World Welterweight Title Jack won it back 1n 1916 defending it 6 times losing it in 1917.
• World Welterweight Title Jack won it back in 1918 defending it 15 times losing it in 1922.
• American Welterweight Title Jack never lost the title holding it from 1918 to 1930 his retirement.

1925: Harry Greb ND 10 Gene Tunney, St. Paul, MN. The 5th and final fight between these two; Tunney wins two, Greb wins one, and two 10-round no decisions.

1934- Barney Ross retains the world Jr. Welterweight title with a ten round decision over Bobby Pacho, in Los Angeles.

1942: Joe Louis KO 6 Abe Simon, NYC. Retains World Heavyweight Title.
A military charity bout that netted $36,146.[13] Before the fight, Louis had spoken at a Relief Fund dinner, saying of the war effort: "We'll win, 'cause we're on God's side." The media widely reported the comment, instigating a surge of popularity for Louis. Slowly, the press would begin to eliminate its stereotypical racial references when covering Louis, and instead treat him as an unqualified sports hero. Despite the public relations boon, Louis's charitable fights would prove financially costly. Although Louis saw none of the roughly $90,000 raised by these and other charitable fights, the IRS would later credit these amounts as taxable income paid to Louis. After the war, the IRS would pursue the issue

1982- Wilfredo Gomez KO 6 Juan "Kid" Meza, Atlantic City. Retains WBC Super Bantamweight Title

1982- Jeff Chandler KO 6 Johnny Carter, Philadelphia. Retains WBA Bantamweight Title.

1983- Larry Holmes W 12 Lucien Rodriguez, Scranton, PA. Retains WBC Heavyweight Title.

1992- Wilfredo Vasquez KO 3 Raul Perez, Mexico City. Wins WBA Super Bantamweight Title.

2008- Verno Phillips W 12 Cory Spinks, St Louis, MO. Wins IBF Junior Middleweight Title.



Born On This Day

1983- Robert Guerrero.
Robert Joseph Guerrero ( in Gilroy, California) is a professional boxer. He is the former IBF Super Featherweight champion and a former two-time IBF featherweight champion of the world. Nicknamed The Ghost, Guerrero's current record is 25 wins, 1 losses, and 1 draw, and 2 no contest with 17 of his wins coming by way of knockout. He vacated the IBF Super Featherweight champion due to his wife battle with leukemia.
After an impressive amateur career begun at a very young age, Guerrero turned professional, at the age of 18, on May 22, 2001 with a four-round unanimous decision win against Alejandro Cruz. After several impressive wins and only a single draw later, Guerrero won the WBC NABF Featherweight title against Cesar Figueroa on December 9, 2004. Defending his NABF title twice, Guerrero was seen as a rising, premier prospect, until meeting Gamaliel Diaz in a bout televised on ShoBox, on the Showtime channel, on December 12, 2005. A surprisingly aggressive Diaz upset Guerrero, winning by split decision and taking the NABF belt in the process.
Guerrero rebounded from his first loss by defeating Sandros Marcos via third-round technical knock-out, setting up a rematch against Diaz, again on Showtime. Guerrero came out aggressive, knocking down Diaz in the first round, and eventually knocking out Diaz early in the sixth round. The win set him up to face IBF champion Eric Aiken.

SIXTY YEARS AGO:

March 27, 1956-

Four future Hall of Famers were in action.

Beaumont, Texas-

Former two-time World featherweight champion Willie Pep (Ring Magazine Hall of Fame, WBHF, IBHOF) chalked up his 200th victory (against only 7 losses and 1 draw) with a 10-round decision over Buddy Baggett.

Hollywood, California-

Fighting as a welterweight, Art Aragon (WBHF) knocked out Danny Giovanelli in the ninth round. Aragon improved to 71-16-5; Giovanelli fell to 28-7-1.

Sacramento, California-

Reigning World light heavyweight champion Archie Moore (153-20-8) won a 10-round, unanimous decision over heavyweight Howard King (32-9-5) in a non-title bout. Moore, of course, would later be inducted into Ring Magazine's Hall of Fame, the WBHF, and the IBHOF.
