Born On This Day
1922- Joey Maxim
Giuseppe Antonio Berardinelli, (March 28, 1922 – June 2, 2001), an American boxer. He was a light heavyweight champion of the world. He took the ring-name Joey Maxim from the Maxim gun, the world's first self-acting machine gun, based on his ability to rapidly throw a large number of left jabs.
Maxim was born in Cleveland, Ohio, he learned to box at a very young age. Following a successful amateur career, during which he won the Golden Gloves, he turned professional in 1940. He boxed fairly regularly at exhibitions during the war years whilst serving as a military police officer at Miami Beach, Florida.
It is somewhat surprising that Maxim had to wait so long for a world title shot, he was 28 and had already fought 87 times as a professional, considering his undoubted ability. His chance came on January 24, 1950, against British boxer Freddie Mills, who was making his first defense, at London's Earl's Court Exhibition Centre. Maxim, very much the underdog against the popular Englishman, won the fight by knockout in the 10th round. After the fight three of Mills's teeth were found embedded in Maxim's left glove, Mills never fought again.
Maxim's next major fight was on May 30, 1951, when he made a bid for Ezzard Charles's world heavyweight title. Maxim was unsuccessful, losing on points.
The most famous fight of Maxim's career was on June 25, 1952, when he made his second defense of his light heavyweight crown, against Sugar Ray Robinson at Yankee Stadium. The fight had originally been scheduled for June 23, but was postponed due to torrential rain. By the time the fight took place New York was in the midst of a record heat wave.
During the fight Robinson built up a large points lead over the champion, although Maxim began to come on later in the fight. Robinson gradually succumbed to hyperthermia and Maxim's harder punches. He collapsed to the canvas at the end of the 13th round, but managed to stagger back to his corner. However, Robinson failed to answer the bell at the start of the 14th, even though he only had to remain on his feet to win the fight and Maxim won by a technical knockout. This was the only time that Robinson was stopped in his 201-fight career.
By this time the original referee, Ruby Goldstein, had himself been forced to retire from the fight after collapsing into the ropes complaining that he could no longer continue. This meant that a substitute referee, Ray Miller, had to be called out to finish to fight. Goldstein and Robinson were not the only people who had to be stretchered from the stadium: several dozen spectators also collapsed during the fight. Between them, the two fighters lost over 20 pounds in weight during the fight.
Despite winning, the Robinson fight took a heavy toll on Maxim. He lost his world title six months later to the veteran Archie Moore. Following this loss Maxim, formerly one of the division's most active fighters, fought only 14 fights in the remaining 6 years of his career. These fights included two rematches with "The Old Mongoose," both of which Maxim lost. Maxim retired in 1958 after losing six consecutive fights.
Maxim retired with a record of 82 wins (21 by KO), 29 losses, and 4 draws in his 115 fight career, he was knocked out only once. During his career he defeated such legendary figures as Jersey Joe Walcott, Jimmy Bivins, and Floyd Patterson.
After his retirement Maxim spent time as a stand-up comic, restaurateur, taxi driver and a film extra. He was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994.

1945- Johnny Famechon
Jean-Pierre Famechon (born 28 March 1945) an Australian featherweight boxer. Over his twenty-year career he became known as a tough fighter, a career record of 56 wins (20 by KO), 6 draws and 5 losses.
His first major win was over Les Dunn to become Victorian Featherweight champion in 1964, then he was Commonwealth featherweight champion in 1967 after defeating the Scot, Johnny O'Brien. He became WBC featherweight champion on 21 January 1969 after he defeated the Cuban Jose Legra on points at the Albert Hall in London.
He defended his crown against Fighting Harada of Japan and won in a controversial decision; he won against Harada in Japan six months later, knocking him out in the fourteenth round. He lost a close bout in Rome to Mexican Vicente Saldivar on 9 May 1970, retiring afterwards.
He was trained by Ambrose Palmer throughout his professional career and never fought as an amateur. He lives in Melbourne, Australia - part of the time in the suburb of Aspendale. Reach: 66
Height: 5 ft 5½ in (166.4 cm)
In 1971, he wrote an autobiography called Fammo.
Famechon was the first Melburnian to become King of Moomba in 1970 when appointed by the Moomba festival committee.
He was badly injured when hit by a car whilst jogging outside Sydney's Warwick Farm racecourse in 1991, which resulted in horrific injuries. In December 1993 Ragnar Purje introduced himself to John and his fiance Glenys Bussey. Ragnar informed John and Glenys that he had a theory pertaining to Acquired Brain Injury neurological rehabilitation. Ragnar explained that his theory was formulated through his extensive Goju Karate studies and training as well as his academic training in psychology, counselling, physical education and sport science. With encouragement from John, Glenys and John's personal physician Ragnar began applying his theory and his Acquired Brain Injury neurological rehabilitation almost immediately. The program was intense and demanding. After three months of this program John took his first steps. From there John has never looked back. John now walks with the aid of a walking stick and his speech and memory have improved. Following his accident, John informed Glenys that he would not marry her until he could walk her down the aisle. John walked down the aisle with Glenys when he married her in June 1997.
John Famechon was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in Los Angeles in 1997.
