HISTORY LESSON OF THE BEST BLACK FIGHTERS OF ALL-TIME
Included are great ALI, LOUIS and some more obscure all-time greats from the late 1800′s to early 1900′s.
Just started watching it. Good stuff and nicely done by the 78FightNews guy.
Awesome video Kevin. Thanks for posting.
This video is more opinion than fact. ” Sports writers hated Holmes because he beat their hero Gerry Cooney.” He never read Mike Katz, Flash Gordon, Phil Pepe, William Nack or even Dick Young, who didn’t like Holmes because Holmes threw him out of his camp. Katz couldn’t stand Cooney. These writers had admiration for many black fighters but are painted as racist with one brush stroke by this video. He also neglected to to say that Schmeling supported Louis late in life. Don King did the same thing Schmeling did. You want a title shot ,If you win I promote your next 3 fights. Before the contract ends he reups you for 3 more. There was terrible racism in boxing but don’t make up stuff that didn’t happen.
