    (August 31, 1945- )
    Born in Garland, Alabama
    Former heavyweight contender with a record of 74-14-1
    Born in Alabama and raised in Ohio
    Possessed legendary punching power
    His trademark was his shaved head
    He didn't take a very good punch and usually had poor endurance, never winning a fight that went beyond 10 rounds
    He was probably 5 to 10 years older than he admitted.
    He had several dumb nicknames: The Acorn (courtesy of Muhammad Ali), The Black Destroyer and The Mongolian Warrior.
    Like many fighters, he stayed on way too long and finally retired at age 48 when he was ko'ed in two rounds by a fighter with a 5-16-2 record.
    His middle name was Dee.
    He was possibly the hardest hitter in boxing history, 68 of his 74 wins were by knockout with 17 first round knockouts!
    Muhammad Ali said he was the hardest hitter he ever fought.
    He was respected as a clean and courageous fighter.
    His six one, 215 pound physique was so impressive, he actually looked bigger than much taller and heavier opponents.
