Hiram "Hymie" Goldstein

BORN 1877; Fought out of Buffalo, New York
(Some sources indicate 1873)
DIED October 16 1953
WEIGHT 128-135 lbs



Goldstein was a good boxer and quite shifty; He fought at a fast pace and had peculiar movements; He had a tendency to fight like a wildcat in a contest, then in the next 2-3 fights, be very defensive, not at all like the attacker he was a few bouts before
During his career, Goldstein defeated Jerry Marshall, Luke Stevens and Sammy Callahan
