Jack Britton
(William James Breslin)
(the "Boxing Marvel")

BORN   October 14 1887; Clinton, New York
DIED March 27 1962; Miami, Florida
HEIGHT.. 5-8
WEIGHT 118-150 lbs
MANAGERS G.F. Thiel, Marcus Williams, Charlie Redman, Jack Costello, Dan Morgan

Britton was a MASTER BOXER DELUXE, one of the very best; He was slick, quick, shifty and elusive; He was not a hard hitter but was a clever man who knew every trick in the book - and invented some new ones himself

This man could walk into any bar, any place, any time in history and take care of himself; He was not a hard hitter but had 350 bouts in an era of great welterweights and was stopped only once - in his 2nd fight;  This speaks "tons" for his boxing ability; During his career, Britton won the Welterweight Championship of the World

Experiencing a rather up-down career at the beginning, Jack persevered and learned his lessons well; When all was said and done, he became one of the finest boxers the ring has ever seen

Nat Fleischer ranked Britton as the #3 All-Time Welterweight; Charley Rose ranked him as the #3 All-Time Welterweight; Herb Goldman ranked Jack as the #10 All-Time Welterweight; Britton was inducted into the Ring Boxing Hall of Fame in 1960 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990
