Boxer
    (July 13, 1903-April 28, 1981)
    Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey
    Professional boxer
    Former world welter-weight and middle-weight champion
    Professional record of 110-22-5
    Real name: Edward Patrick Walker
    Nickname: The Toy Bulldog
    He drank heavily and showed up for fights drunk or hungover.
    What kind of nickname is 'The Toy Bulldog?'
    Many of his fights ended in draws because back then, rules of boxing didn't allow for wins except by knockout.
    He's considered one of the greatest welterweights and middleweights of all-time. Certainly the best between the time of Stanley Ketchel and the forties.
    He was a charter inductee to the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990.
    He specialized in beating much bigger fighters, including fighters outweighing him by more than forty pounds.
    He defeated the then light heavyweight champion Max Rosenbloom in a non-title match.
    After retirement, he opened a restaurant and became a respected artist.
    He died of Parkinson's which was almost certainly caused by his years as a fighter.
