1884- Born on this day Abraham "Abe" Attell, boxing hall of famer

Abraham Washington "Abe" Attell (February 22, 1884 – February 7, 1970), better known in the boxing world as Abe "The Little Hebrew" Attell, was a boxer who became known for his record-setting period as world Featherweight champion, as well as for his involvement in the Black Sox Scandal and other scandals.
Attell was born in San Francisco, California. He was Jewish, but grew up in an Irish neighborhood. Because of that, he often found himself involved in fights, and according to him, he would get involved in as many as 10 bouts each day as a kid. Attell's father abandoned his family when Attell was 13, and Attell had to sell newspapers to support his family. He used to sell them on the streets and corners, and while selling newspapers, he got a chance to witness the fight between Solly Smith and George Dixon for the world's Featherweight championship. With that, Attell and two of his brothers were convinced that maybe they had a future in boxing.
Attell's first fight was on August 19, 1900, when he knocked out Kid Lennett in two rounds. His mother, who strongly opposed Attell's idea of being a boxer, later became one of Attell's staunchest supporters, even betting on her son to win. He gained the nickname "The Little Hebrew" in these early fights.
Attell won 10 fights in a row by knockout and later moved to Denver, Colorado, where he met Dixon for the world's Featherweight championship in 1903, when Attell was 18. He beat Dixon by a decision in 15 rounds, and became world Featherweight champion. He lost the crown in his second defense, being knocked out in five rounds by Tommy Sullivan. However, he regained the crown from Sullivan by beating him in their rematch by knockout. Attell then went on his streak of 18 defenses in a row (a division record until Eusebio Pedroza broke it in 1985). Attell beat, among others, Battling Nelson and Johnny Kilbane during that streak. His nicknamed changed into the "The Little Champ" during this streak.
During his time as a world champion, Attell was allegedly involved with gambler/gangster Arnold Rothstein. According to some legends, they became very good friends during this period.
Attell went on to lose his world Featherweight title to Kilbane in 1912, losing by a 20 round decision, in a fight where Kilbane declared that Attell's handlers put a substance on Attell's glove to make Kilbane blind. According to live witnesses, Attell also tried an assortment of other illegal methods to win the fight.
On July 4, 1913, Attell accidentally hit the referee on the face during a win against Willie Beecher. He finally retired in 1917.
Attell managed one boxer in his career, Marty Goldman, to a 33 Win (10 ko's), 11 Loss, 3 Draw record in 47 career fights.
Attell was involved in one of sport's largest scandals of all time, when he was accused in 1920 of being the messenger between Rothstein and players of the Chicago White Sox baseball organization, during the planning stages of the alleged fix of the 1919 World Series, also known as the Black Sox scandal. Attell's name made it back to the newspaper headlines, and he along with Rothstein and many White Sox players, were formally accused of many charges, including fixing the event. All were eventually found not guilty but banned from participating in baseball activities. Attell subsequently denied being involved in any talks about fixing the series, and he alleged that the wrong Abe Attell was accused.
Bat Masterson, dean of the New York boxing journalists, considered Abe Attell pound for pound the best fighter, outside of Wyatt Earp, that he had ever seen.
He was, however, inducted as a member of various halls of fame for boxers.
Attell had a record of 92 wins, 10 losses, 18 draws and 45 no-decisions, with 51 wins by knockout, making him a member of Ring Magazine's list of fighters with 50 or more knockout wins.
Attell died in New Paltz, New York.

1915- Born on this day Gus Lesnevich, light heavyweight boxing champ

Gustav (Gus) George Lesnevich (February 22, 1915 - February 28, 1964) was an American boxer. Lesnevich was born and raised in Cliffside Park, NJ.
Lesnevich turned pro in 1934 and in 1940 took on National Boxing Association World Light Heavyweight Title holder Billy Conn, but lost a decision. In 1941 he took on Anton Christoforidis, winning the title by decision. Later that year he defended the title twice against Tami Mauriello, winning both decisions. In 1948 he lost a decision to Freddie Mills along with his title recognition. In 1949 he took on Ezzard Charles, but was TKO'd in the 7th, and retired after the bout.
In addition to his various accolades, Lesnevich was named Ring Magazine Fighter of the Year in 1947.
Lesnevich served in the United States Coast Guard from 1943 to 1945.

1908- Stanley Ketchel took on his most dangerous opponent yet, Mike (Twin) Sullivan, one of the leading welterweights and middleweights of the era. Ketchel flattened him in less than a round and then fought Mike's brother, Jack Sullivan, for the vacant world middleweight championship. Jack lasted twenty rounds but was eventually knocked out and Ketchel was named the new titleholder.


1918- Died On This day Terrible Terry McGovern (March 9, 1880–February 22, 1918)
Born John Terrence McGovern in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was a boxer who held the world bantamweight and featherweight titles.
McGovern won the bantamweight crown in 1899 when he knocked out Thomas Pedlar Palmer in 1 round. He never defended the title and relinquished it in 1900.
He then moved up in weight and captured the featherweight crown from George Dixon on January 9, 1900, by scoring a technical knockout in the eighth round. As a featherweight, McGovern was involved in some controversial bouts. For example he is credited with knocking out Aurelio Herrera in defense of his crown in 5 rounds. Herrera afterwards claimed he had been doped during the fight. McGovern is also credited with scoring a 2 round knockout over Joe Gans. Gans claimed that he threw the fight.
McGovern lost his crown when he was stopped by Young Corbett II in 2 rounds on November 28, 1902. Corbett also won their rematch
McGovern finished his career with a record of 65 wins (42 KOs) 5 losses and 5 draws. As was common in that era, he also engaged in many No Decision bouts. In 2003, McGovern was named to the Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time. Boxing historian Nat Fleischer ranked McGovern as the greatest featherweight of all time.
McGovern spent much of his later life in mental institutions. He died of pneumonia and kidney ailment in the charity ward of King's County Hospital, Brooklyn, New, York, USA, on February 22, 1918.

Born On This Day

1884- Abe Attell (born Abraham Washington Attell in San Francisco, California)
nown in the boxing world as Abe "The Little Hebrew" Attell, was a boxer who became known for his record-setting six-year reign as World Featherweight Champion. Said to be a friend of the gangster Arnold Rothstein, Attell was charged (and acquitted) of game fixing in the Black Sox Scandal in 1919 and was implicated in other sports controversies.
Attell was born in San Francisco, California, the son of Jewish parents. Growing up in a mostly Irish neighborhood, he was often involved in fights with neighborhood boys. He said as a kid, he sometimes had up to 10 bouts each day. After his father abandoned the family when Attell was 13, he sold newspapers to earn money. Selling at the corner of 8th and Market, where the Mechanics Pavilion was, Attell was able to see the fight between Solly Smith and George Dixon for the world's Featherweight championship. With that, Attell and his brothers Caesar and Monte became convinced that maybe they had futures in boxing.
Attell's first fight was at age 15 on August 19, 1900, when he knocked out Kid Lennett in two rounds. His mother, who strongly opposed his boxing, later became one of his staunchest supporters, betting on him to win. After these early fights, he was called by the nickname "The Little Hebrew".
After winning 10 fights in a row by knockout, Attell moved to Denver, Colorado. At the age of 17, he fought with Dixon for the World Featherweight championship in 1901 and beat him by a decision in 15 rounds. He won again in 1904 by beating Johnny Reagan in 20 rounds. One year later, he lost the crown to Tony Sullivan but regained it in February 1906 with a decision over Jimmy Walsh.
Attell successfully defended his title for 18 fights in a row from 1906–1912. (This was a division record until Eusebio Pedroza surpassed it in 1985). Among other opponents, Attell beat Battling Nelson and Johnny Kilbane during that streak. He was then called "The Little Champ". From 1909–1910, his brother Monte Attell, called the "Nob Hill Terror", held the Bantamweight Championship, making them the first brothers to hold world titles simultaneously. Caesar Attell also fought and was called "Two and a Half".
During his time as world featherweight champion, Attell was allegedly involved with gambler/gangster Arnold Rothstein. According to some legends, they became good friends during this period.
Attell lost his world Featherweight title to Johnny Kilbane in 1912, losing by a 20-round decision. Kilbane claimed that Attell's handlers put a substance on the fighter's glove to blind him. According to witnesses, Attell tried an assortment of other illegal methods to win the fight.[citation needed] On July 4, 1913, Attell accidentally hit the referee on the face during a win against Willie Beecher. He finally retired in 1917.
Attell managed one boxer, Marty Goldman. He coached him to a 33 Win (10 ko's), 11 Loss, 3 Draw record in 47 career fights.
In 1920 Attell was accused of being the messenger between the gangster Rothstein and players of the Chicago White Sox baseball organization, during the planning stages of the alleged fix of the 1919 World Series. The Black Sox scandal was considered a major outrage in sports. Attell's name appeared in newspaper headlines related to the scandal. He and many White Sox players were formally charged with several counts, including fixing the event, however Rothstein was never charged.. All were eventually acquitted at trial, but the baseball association banned them from participating in baseball activities. Attell denied having been involved in any talks about fixing the series. He convinced the jury that the wrong Abe Attell was accused.
Attell died in New Paltz, New York on February 7, 1970.
Attell was inducted posthumously as a member of various halls of fame:
* 1955, Boxing Hall of Fame
* 1982, National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame;
* 1983, the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame
* 1985, San Francisco Boxing Hall of Fame;
* 1990, first class of the International Boxing Hall of Fame; and
* World Boxing Hall of Fame.

* His record of 92 wins, 10 losses, 18 draws and 45 no-decisions, with 51 wins by knockout, earned him a place on the list of Ring Magazine: "Fighters with 50 or More Knockout Wins".
* Bat Masterson, dean of the New York boxing journalists, considered Abe Attell pound for pound the best fighter, outside of Wyatt Earp, whom he had ever seen.

1998- Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson KO 1 Arthur Johnson, Washington, D.C. Retains IBF World Flyweight Title.


This was supposed to a big test for Too Sharp since Arthur had given Tapia a close tussle. Mark Johnson was a cut above the rest at 112. He would have contended with any of the great flyweight champions at his best.

1992- "Terrible" Terry Norris KO 9 Carl Daniels, San Diego. Retains WBC World Super Welterweight Title.



This is one of Norris' least talked about performances. Daniels was a hot prospect/contender at the time. He was "spent at the finish" as I recalled one writer labeling him.
