Lee Oma
Born: Frank Czjewski, Mar 1916, Chicago, IL
Died: December 10, 1976, Massapequa, NY
Height: 5-11;

Career Record: 63-27-3 (28 KO's) 1 NC

Oma began his career by giving half-hearted performances, in getting knocked out 10 times in his first 20 bouts. He rebuilt his career and became a contender during the mid 1940's, and again during the early 1950's. Throughout his career he was a frustration for many, who felt that Oma could have achieved more than he did. Oma problems arose from womanizing and drinking, as well as the fact that he usually clowned around in the ring, instead of using his good boxing skills.
