Cocoa Kid Research

by on Mar.24, 2011, under Boxing News

by Mike DeLisa and Johnny Bos

Bos and I are finally working up our presentation about the origins of the Cocoa Kid.  Current interent postings dispute our contention that Hardwick fought in Ohio in the Freddie Miller Stable.

We believe that careful research needs specific documentation.  Therefore please look at the following clipping from October 7, 1931:

1931-10-07-lew-hardwick

While you chew on that, take a look at the following picture of Cuban boxer Juan Cepero.

Nice one, don’t you think?  While we finish our project, Bos would like to correct one error he posted somewhere: Danny Davis not Jimmy Dunn was manager of both Freddie miller and hardwick.

More to come soon!
