Although this man is not a part of this Legendary crew, I'd like to take the time to post a video and a couple of facts for this dude. I will do it as soon as I remember who that boxer is. He fought at the late 50s to mid 70s if im not mistaken and he was Italian. :?:

A defensive wizard who could and would make Roy Jones or Mayweather's defensive skills look like nothing really special.


It's all coming back to me now.. Kind of a small weight class ' 135-155' and his record was almost perfect. 100+wins - 3-4 losses.


Nicolino Locche --->>(September 2, 1939 – September 7, 2005)

Spoiler:
one of the few boxers who smoked


Born in Argentina actually cause he wasnt fucking Italian. .. He debuted at the age of 9, and his amateur record was 117-5. Locche turned professional at the age of 19 and amassed a record of 117-4-14 (14 KOs). Therefore, holding an overall record of 234-9-14. He became the Lineal and WBA Light Welterweight Champion in Tokyo, Japan on December 12, 1968, after defeating Paul Takeshi Fuji by technical knockout after Fuji refused to start the 10th round out of frustration because of exhaustion and his inability to connect punches on "The Untouchable," according to the Argentine boxing commentators' recount of the bout (Dotora, 2004)

117 WIns - 4 Losses - 14 Draws

Having a barely 10% finishing rate with14 Ko wins and just 1 ko loss.

Locche was a beast. Not a guy who will be remembered because of his style but he deserves to be remembered.

Use to puff on a cigarette between rounds, never had a strict diet he adhered to in any way, I love watching old tapes of the dude.

I did not know about his amateur career frag that is quite interesting. Dude was a beast at every level

Making a challenger (Takeshi Fuji) quit on the stool during a title fight because of the frustration of not being able to hit locche is insane.

Good shit Frag keep it coming. I always am down to read and discuss old school boxing more.

Marquess of Queensberry Rules


From wiki:

'The Marquess of Queensberry rules is a code of generally accepted rules in the sport of boxing. Drafted in London in 1865 and published in 1867, they were named so as John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry publicly endorsed the code,although they were written by a Welsh sportsman named John Graham Chambers. The code of rules on which modern boxing is based, the Queensberry rules were the first to mandate boxing gloves in boxing.

The Queensberry rules superseded the Revised London Prize Ring rules (1853), and are intended for use in both professional and amateur boxing matches, thus separating it from the less popular American Fair Play Rules, which were strictly intended for amateur matches. In popular culture the term is sometimes used to refer to a sense of sportsmanship and fair play.'


Official rules

To be a fair stand-up boxing match in a 24-foot ring, or as near that size as practicable.
No wrestling or hugging allowed.
The rounds to be of three minutes' duration, and one minute's time between rounds.
If either man falls through weakness or otherwise, he must get up unassisted, 10 seconds to be allowed him to do so, the other man meanwhile to return to his corner, and when the fallen man is on his legs the round is to be resumed and continued until the three minutes have expired. If one man fails to come to the scratch in the 10 seconds allowed, it shall be in the power of the referee to give his award in favour of the other man.
A man hanging on the ropes in a helpless state, with his toes off the ground, shall be considered down.
No seconds or any other person to be allowed in the ring during the rounds.
Should the contest be stopped by any unavoidable interference, the referee to name the time and place as soon as possible for finishing the contest; so that the match must be won and lost, unless the backers of both men agree to draw the stakes.
The gloves to be fair-sized boxing gloves of the best quality and new.
Should a glove burst, or come off, it must be replaced to the referee's satisfaction.
A man on one knee is considered down and if struck is entitled to the stakes.
That no shoes or boots with spikes or springs be allowed.
The contest in all other respects to be governed by revised London Prize Ring Rules.



John L. Sullivan vs Dominick McCaffrey


In the 6th round, after the champion tackled the challenger to the floor, referee Billy Tate stopped the fight to save McAffrey from further punishment and declared Sullivan the winner. Both fighters subsequently agreed to fight a 7th, unofficial round without a referee present. Sullivan is named the 1st Heavyweight Champion under the Marquess of Queensberry Rules after this victory.


40-0-2
United States Jake Kilrain KO 75 (80) 08/07/1889 United States Richburg, Mississippi, United States


Last world title bout under the London Prize Ring Rules. (retired undefeated in 1889. Came back or retirement to fight James J. Corbett, in 1892, 3 years and 2 months after his last title defence. Corbett made Sullivan chase him, thus tiring him. Sullivan was a dead man walking for the most part, after the first 5 rounds.. In the 21st round, Corbett connected with a big left hand and it was all over.That marked the first and last time that John L. Sullivan ever lost.(retired after this bout)


That bout was not a bare knuckle fight, subsequently having no interference with Sullivan's 'Bare knuckle Lineal Boxing Championship 'belt'', which, he took with him in the after life.


40-0-2 34KOs (though many sources disagree on his exact record)


At the 'twilight' of his relatively brief span of life, he could best be described from my friend, wiki, as its presented below:


'Overweight and unhealthy from a long life of overindulging in food and drinks as well as from the effects from prizefighting, Sullivan died at age 59 and is buried in the Old Calvary Cemetery in Roslindale, a neighborhood of Boston. He died with barely 10 dollars in his pocket.

Sullivan was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990, as a member of the hall's original class. .. . ..........'

The barn where Sullivan trained still stands in the small town of Belfast, New York and is now the Bare Knuckle Boxing Hall of Fame.

I am sure I replied.. anyway.. perhaps there was an internet fuck up.

Yea man.. dude looked sharp as fook. He'd just wait with his hands down and made it look EA-SY, dodging(slipping) punches and all..

He TKO'ed him due to non strikes, or some shit.. The exact opposite of TKO strikes, anyway. . :lol: TKO(dodged2much) :-? :lol:
