    Professional boxer
    Former light-heavyweight champion of the world
    Record 185-23-11 with one no contest
    Most number of knockouts in boxing history
    Real name: Archibald Wright
    Nicknamed the Old Mongoose
    His fame comes more from his longevity versus his considerable talent.
    He didn't take a particularly good punch with 11 of his losses coming by way of knockout.
    His official birth date may be incorrect and he may have been several years older than he admitted.
    As a trainer, he was fired by Muhammad Ali.
    He was knocked out when he later fought Ali.
    He was George Foreman's trainer when Foreman was knocked out by Ali.
    He had one of the longest careers in boxing history and holds the record for the most amount of knockouts at 131.
    In his legendary fight with Yvon Durelle, he was knocked down three times in the first round and again in the fifth before coming back to knock out Durelle in the eleventh.
    Ring Magazine ranks him at #4 of the greatest punchers of all time.
    He is the only man to have fought Muhammad Ali and Rocky Marciano.
    Like many blacks of his time, he had to put up with Jim Crow laws, like fighting in places he couldn't enter as a customer.
    After he retired, he was active in the civil rights movement and became a pretty decent character actor.
