    (April 12, 1954- )
    Born in Indianapolis, Indiana
    Professional boxer and former three time light-heavyweight champion (12/2/78- 4/22/79, 11/30/79-3/31/80 and 2/9/86- 5/23/87)
    Retired with a professional record of forty three wins including thirty five knockout victories and six losses, five by knockout
    1971 Golden Gloves Champion
    1972 Olympic bronze medalist
    Prominent professional opponents included: Michael Spinks, Victor Galindez, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, and Yaqui Lopez
    He wore a goofy Fu Manchu mustache and mutton chop sideburns combination.
    He had absolutely no concept of defense.
    He lost the light-heavyweight title three times. All by knockout.
    He wasn't a particularly hard hitter.
    He made only one successful defense of any of his three titles.
    He was the first man to win the light-heavyweight title three times.
    All of his losses were to then or future light-heavyweight champions.
    He fought in probably the greatest period of light-heavyweight history.
    He ducked no one and indeed fought almost any light-heavyweight of note who was active during his career.
    His repeated KO losses were due to his getting hit a lot rather than an inability to take a punch.
    His fights were guaranteed to be wild brawls no matter who the opponent was.
    He served as a full-time deputy sheriff and worked with troubled youth during most of his boxing career and after retiring from fighting and law enforcement became a full-time youth volunteer.
    He was left handed.
