Example text

That was all Galento had to hear. In the end both fighters had to be hospitalized. Nova said many times then, and in later years, that he never spoke to Galento again, although their paths crossed many times at boxing functions and affairs. Nova was a young man taken to school by a man who had no scruples once the bell rang. Many people believed Nova was ruined in that 21 Boxing in New Jersey, 1900–1999 fight, although he did go on to challenge Joe Louis for the title. It was said he could have been a better fighter had he not fought Tony Galento.

He was the man now. Revenge is sweet, especially if you and your opponent hate each other. It was typical of Ike to fight often and against stiff opposition. In two fights before his unification title fight with Bob Montgomery, Ike would face two top-rated welterweights, the first a kayo win over Juste Fontaine in late May of 1947. He followed that three weeks later by kayoing Tippy Larkin, the junior welterweight champ, in a non-title fight. His confidence in himself was so great he never thought about losing against two fine fighters as Larkin and Fontaine.

After all, how many fighters in all boxing history completed a full career without ever being knocked out? Think about it. The fact is, you probably would be pressed to find a dozen. Start with Marciano and Tunney. That takes care of the jaw; how about terrific punchers? Many fight buffs believe you cannot be taught how to develop a huge punch. Punchers are born with that power. It is believed Tippy Larkin tried many methods to strengthen his jaw, but I believe he failed simply because it can’t be done.
