1909- Stanley Ketchell ND 10 Philadelphia Jack O’Brien, NYC. O’Brien, down 4-times in the 9th and 10th-rounds, is saved from a certain knockout by the bell.

1974- George Foreman retains his world Heavyweight championship with a second round knockout over Ken Norton in Caracas, Venezuela. Norton a boxer notorious for his awkward boxing style and crab-like defense, who had broken the jaw of Muhammad Ali while defeating him on points a year earlier. Norton's ability to "take a punch", however, was suspect, and Foreman put him to the test. In an astonishing display of aggression and punching power, Foreman knocked out Norton in just two rounds. The win made Foreman 40–0 with 37 knockouts.

Born On This Day

1936: Eder Jofre (born in São Paulo, SP, Brazil)
Retired Brazilian boxer and former bantamweight and featherweight champion .
Jofre represented his native country at the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia.
Olympic Results
1st round bye
Defeated Thein Myint (Burma) points
Lost to Claudio Barrientos (Chile) points
A native of São Paulo, Jofre, whose nicknames were "Galinho de ouro" (The Golden Bantam) and "Jofrinho", made his professional debut on March 23, 1957, beating Raul Lopez by knockout in five rounds. He had a total of twelve fights in 1957, including two each against Lopez, Osvaldo Perez and Ernesto Miranda, against whom Jofre sustained his first two record stains: two ten round draws (ties).
He began 1958 by winning four more fights, and then, on May 14 of that year, he had his first fight abroad, drawing in ten rounds against Ruben Caceres in Montevideo, Uruguay. On November 14, Jose Smecca became the only man to drop Jofre in his career; Jofre got up from a first round knockdown to knock Smecca out in seven rounds.
Jofre won eight fights in 1959, including one against two time world title challenger Leo Espinoza, and a seventh round knockout in a rematch with Caceres.
On February 19, 1960, he fought Ernesto Miranda for the third time, this time with the South American Bantamweight title on the line. Jofre outpointed Miranda over fifteen rounds to win his first title as a professional. Jofre retained the title with a knockout in three rounds in a fourth fight with Miranda, and, after one more win, he made his American debut, defeating top ranked challenger Jose Medel by knockout in ten on August 16 at Los Angeles. Next, he defeated the power punching Ricardo Moreno (later ranked among boxing's all time best punchers by Ring Magazine), by a knockout in six.
On November 18 of that year, Jofre became world champion, when he knocked out the WBA world Bantamweight champion Eloy Sanchez in six rounds, at Los Angeles.
Jofre proved to be a busy world champion, fighting top notch fighters, both in title engagements and in non title fights. From 1960 to 1965, he retained his title against Piero Rollo, Ramon Arias (in Caracas, Venezuela), Johnny Caldwell, Herman Marques, Jose Medel, Katsuyoshi Aoki (in Tokyo), Johnny Jamito (in Manila), and Bernardo Caraballo (in Bogotá, Colombia).
In addition, he defeated such fighters as Billy Peacock, Sadao Yaoita and Fernando Soto in non title bouts. After the fight with Aoki, Jofre was also recognized as world Bantamweight champion by the WBC, therefore, becoming the undisputed world champion.
Up until his defense against Caraballo, Jofre had the record for the longest undefeated run in boxing history since the start of a career. This record would shortly after be broken by Nino Benvenuti and, much later on, by Julio César Chávez.
On May 17, 1965, his streak as an undefeated fighter was broken when he lost to "Fighting Harada" by a fifteen round split decision in Nagoya, Japan, to lose the world Bantamweight title. Harada was the only fighter ever to defeat Jofre as a professional.
After losing to Harada by unanimous decision at a rematch held in Tokyo on June 1, 1966, Jofre retired.
In 1969, he made a comeback, beating Rudy Corona by a knockout in six on August 26. After winning thirteen fights in a row, he challenged for a world title once again: on May 21, 1973, he fought Jose Legra for the WBC world Featherweight title, in Brasilia. Jofre became a two division world champion by defeating Legra with a fifteen round unanimous decision.
Despite having won his second world title, Jofre realized he was nearing the end of the road as far as his boxing career was concerned. He did defeat Frankie Crawford in a non title affair and defended his world Featherweight title against fellow former world Bantamweight champion, Vicente Saldivar of Mexico, in a "super fight" held at Salvador. He knocked Saldivar out in four rounds.
After a string of fights against lesser opponents, he retired, having beaten the mexican Octavio "Famoso" Gomez by a unanimous but controversial decision (120 x 110 by judge Antonio Di, 119 x 115 by judge Adriano Carollo and 117 x 116 by judge Américo Vieira) in São Paulo on October 8 of 1976. In this last fight, Jofre was slow and uncertain, and himself put in doubt the correcteness of the arbiters decision ("Digam o que disserem, eu não venci Famoso Gomez", in the Rio de Janeiro newspaper "O Globo").
He had a record of 72-2-4 (50 KOs), making him a member of the exclusive group of boxers that has won 50 or more fights by knockout.
Jofre has since dedicated himself to being a boxing trainer in Brazil. He also owns businesses such as supermarkets and others.
Honors
He is a member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
In 2003, he was listed as #85 on Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time.
He is listed as #19 on Ring Magazine's list of the 80 Best Fighters of the Last 80 Years.

1961- Leslie Stewart (born in Laventille, Trinidad)
Former Trinidadian boxer.
Known as "Laventille Tiger", Stewart turned pro in 1982 and challenged for the Vacant WBA Light Heavyweight Title in 1986, but was TKO'd by Marvin Johnson when the bout was stopped on cuts. In the rematch the following year, Stewart dominated Johnson, and Johnson's corner retired the fighter in the 9th round. Stewart lost the belt in his first defense to Virgil Hill. In 1988 he challenged WBC Light Heavyweight Title holder Donny Lalonde, but lost via TKO. In 1998 he took on WBO Light Heavyweight Title holder Michael Moorer, but again lost via TKO. He retired in 2000 after bouts of inactivity in the 1990s. He currently has no registered address as he recently was freed from an upstate New York Correctional Facility.

1966- Engels Pedroza (born in San Carlos, Venezuela)
Former Venezuelan boxer.
In 1985 he represented Venezuela on the amateur World Cup in Seoul, gaining a silver medal in lightweights.[1] The same year he scored a victory over future professional world champion Joey Gamache in a USA-Venezuela duel meet.[2] One year later he participated on the 1986 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Reno, where he again won a silver medal in lightweights after losing in the final to three-time amateur world champion Adolfo Horta.
Still in 1986 he turned professional, and after a successful career start he was named Ring Magazine Prospect of the Year in 1987. This award existed between 1983 and 1988, and among others it was issued to future world champions Mark Breland, Mike Tyson and Michael Moorer.
He lost his first professional bout after 19 victories in 1988 against Mike Johnson via a ninth-round TKO, clearly being ahead on all three scorecards. After going 7-1 in his next eight bouts, he was matched up against Young Dick Tiger for the IBF intercontinental welterweight title, and won by a third round TKO. He defended his title once, but then vacated the belt and continued his career against mostly journeyman opposition. He fought on for various minor titles, but came up short all times, including a seventh round TKO loss against future world champion Bronco McKart in 1994.

Finally in 1996 he managed to capture another title, the WBA Fedecentro light middleweight belt. However on his first title defense he lost to future world title challenger Pedro Ortega and retired afterwards. His professional career record concluded 42-9-0.

1971- Irene Pacheco (born in San Juan de Urabá, Antioquia)
