Boxer
    (August 12, 1937- )
    Born in Toronto, Canada
    Canadian heavyweight boxer (1955-1978)
    Known as having one of the best chins in boxing history
    Career record: 73- 18- 2 with 64 KO wins
    Prominent opponents included; George Foreman, Jerry Quarry, Jimmy Ellis, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Cleveland Williams, Oscar Bonavena, and Floyd Patterson
    Inducted into The Boxing Hall of Fame in 1997
    Offensively, he had a very crude brawling style of fighting.
    He rarely did well against top opponents and did particularly poorly against the more skilled boxers.
    In one of his rare wins against a top fighter he was awarded a KO over Jerry Quarry when Quarry didn't get up from a knockdown he easily could have when he got the referee's count mixed up and was counted out.
    He bled easily.
    Nobody ever accused him of being the sharpest knife in the drawer.
    After his retirement his weight ballooned to over three hundred pounds.
    One of his nicknames was 'Washer Woman.'
    His family was destroyed by mental health and drug abuse issues, i.e., two sons died of drug overdoses, his other son and wife committed suicide.
    He established a steady, if unspectacular, acting career slightly before he retired from boxing.
    He may very well have been the toughest fighter in history. Despite fighting some of the hardest punchers in heavyweight history, he was only stopped twice and never, ever knocked down.
    He went the distance twice with Muhammad Ali, shutting him up at least briefly.
    One of his other nicknames was 'Iron Man.'
    He is a popular anti-drug speaker.
    Despite his stylistic limitations on offense, he was actually a very good defensive fighter and was particularly good at keeping his gloves placed where they could protect him most effectively.
    He was a very good puncher with a very, very good left hook.
