    Re: Rubin "Hurricane" Carter - The Boxer

    BORN May 6 1937; Clifton, New Jersey (Fought out of Paterson, New Jersey)

    WEIGHT 156-165 1/2 lbs
    MANAGERS Carmine Tedeschi, Pat Amato
    The "Hurricane" was a hard-hitting middleweight battler; He would be remembered today as a capable fighter and title contender had he not been involved in murdering a group of people in a bar in 1966; Instead, this black deed comes to mind when his name is mentioned

    Although he has spent the rest of his life denying his involvement, even a cursory look at the evidence shows that he was involved; Contrary to popular belief, no court has ever exonerated him
