    (April 27, 1938-November 21, 2015)
    Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico
    Former light-heavyweight champion of the world (1968-1974)
    Considered among the greatest light-heavyweights of all time
    Professional record of 56-8-1 with 46 knockout wins
    He didn't have a very good chin or defensive skills, usually not even holding his hands up correctly.
    Despite being a natural and very good light-heavy, he repeatedly fought at heavy-weight, usually with disastrous results.
    He was ko'd in two rounds by Joe Frazier and knocked down seven times by Muhammad Ali before their fight was stopped.
    After retiring as undisputed light-heavyweight champ, he tried to come back a year later and was ko'd in two fights.
    At six foot three, he usually had a distinct height advantage over his opponents.
    He possessed massive punching power.
    His knockouts over Dick Tiger and Mike Quarry are going to be on highlight reels until the end of time.
    An African-American, he beat white fighter Pierre Fourie in South Africa during the height of apartheid.
    In one of his title defenses, he was knocked down in the first round and got up to win by ko in the same round!
    After his final retirement, he became a deputy sheriff, and later, a detective with his hometown sheriff's department.
    He worked with youth and trained boxers and MMA fighters.
