    Leroy Haynes



    Philly Boxing History

    JANUARY 23, 1939

    HAYNES NEARS THE END WITH 10-ROUND LOSS TO LAZER

    Leroy Haynes, the once highly rated contender who dreamed of a shot at Joe Louis, lost a ten round decision to Roy Lazer in Newark, NJ on this day in 1939, signaling the end of his excellent ring career. The loss dropped his record to 40-11-2 and started his final slide into retirement. He would fight 11 more times after this bout, winning only once.

    In 1936, Haynes had his best year, going 9-1-1 with 8 knockouts. The run included a pair of KOs over former Heavyweight Champion Primo Carnera. The first, held at the Philadelphia Arena, ended in round 3. They met for the second time outdoors in Brooklyn at Ebbet's Field, with Haynes winning in nine.

    Haynes and Lazer would square off once again, four months after their first contest, in the same Newark ring. The result was a similar 10-round decision win for Lazer. Haynes would trudge on to the end of 1939, retire, and then return in 1941 for his final four bouts.

    TASSONE TKOs DONATO AT SPECTRUM

    Tony "Rocky" Tassone won a crowd-pleasing 7th round TKO victory over Rudy Donato in a clash of Philly middleweights, on this day in 1979.

    Rocky pressed the action from the opening bell and looked strong throughout the bout. He flashed his power with a first round knockdown and had Donato bleeding early on. Tassone continued to pound away until the fight was stopped six rounds later. It was a clear and impressive win for Tassone.

    The bout preceded the main event of the evening, David Love's 10-round decision over Bennie Briscoe. 6,296 fans attended the Spectrum card which also featured Ernie Singletary winning a 10-round decision over Ralph Moncrief, an 8-round draw between Mike Picciotti and Johnny Cooper, and a 4-round decision victory by Kevin 'The Spoiler' Howard over William Burton.

    Tony Tassone never won another bout. He lost his next three bouts and retired for good in 1984.

    SAXTON TOPS BRATTON IN 10

    Newark, NJ welterweight, Johnny Saxton fought Johnny Bratton, the experienced Chicago-based pro, on this day in 1954.

    Bratton was coming off his second failed title challenge of Kid Gavilan, while Saxton was looking to land his first championship shot, when this match up of Blinky Palermo protégées was staged at the Philadelphia Arena.

    Saxton's 43-2-1 record included wins over Joey Giardello, Tiger Jones and Tony Pellone. Bratton had fought everyone by that point and his 59-21-3 record showed it.

    In the fight, Saxton cruised to a unanimous decision win over Bratton. The official scorecards gave Bratton just one round. He would fight only two more times before retiring.

    The victory set Saxton up for a world title match against Gavilan, which took place in October 1954, at Philadelphia's Convention Hall. Saxton made good, winning a unanimous decision over 15 rounds to take the crown. But most observers thought Gavilan had the edge in the boring title waltz.

    WES MOUZON DROPS DECISION TO KAPILOW AT PHILADELPHIA ARENA



    Teenage lightweight phenom, Wesley Mouzon suffered a rare loss over ten rounds against Danny Kapilow, on this day in 1946. The talented boxer from North Philadelphia was coming off a non-title draw against Ike Williams, the NBA 135-pound champ. But in this bout, the experience factor seemed to have Mouzon in over his head. The NY veteran, Kapilow, jumped on Mouzon early and sustained the attack (and beating) throughout the ten rounds. By the end of the fight, Kapilow was in total control and took the unanimous decision.

    Mouzon was one of the most gifted Philly fighters ever to come along. His brief ring tenure was loaded with impressive wins and great promise. Solid victories over fellow-Philadelphians Eddie Giosa (twice), Santa Bucca, Cueball Young and Dorsey Lay, displayed his ability early on. But his momentum continued even after he stepped up his level of competition. The surprise draw with Williams got things started, and after the loss to Kapilow, Mouzon beat former champ Leo Rodak later on in 1946.

    In August, Mouzon scored the biggest win of his life, when he knocked out reigning lightweight champion Bob Montgomery in the second round of a non-title fight, before 15,000 stunned Shibe Park fans. The shocking quickness and relative ease of the win marked Mouzon as a certain future champ. His title chance would come three months later.

    But the rematch with Montgomery was a fateful encounter for Mouzon. Montgomery reversed the result of their first meeting, emphatically scoring an 8th round knockout to defend his championship. But even more critically, Mouzon suffered a detached retina during the bout that abruptly ended his boxing career. Eventually, Wes went on to a second profession as a successful trainer.

    DANNY KRAMER, EDDIE MAHONEY DRAW IN 4

    Fairly early in the career of North Philly featherweight southpaw, Danny Kramer, he faced Californian Eddie Mahoney, in San Bernadino, on this day in 1920. The four round bout was judged a draw. Kramer, who eventually logged more than 130 pro bouts starting in 1919, entered the ring for the Mahoney bout with a record of 19-4-10 (2 KOs).

    In 1925, Kramer fought for the vacant featherweight championship at New York's Madison Square Garden against Louis 'Kid' Kaplan. Things didn't go well for Kramer in his only title shot. He took the worst of the punishment that night and suffered a bloody, broken nose in the process. Finally, his corner stopped the fight at 1:11 of round nine.

    Kramer fought until 1930, retiring with a record of 100-27-7 with 32 knockouts.

    BASSETT TOPS ZULUETA AT MET

    Percy Bassett, the puppy-eyed puncher from West Philly scored a 10-round unanimous decision over Cuban Orlando Zulueta on this day in 1950. The main event of the evening was promoted by Jimmy Toppi and played out before 2,280 fans at the Met, located at Broad & Poplar Streets in North Philadelphia.

    Zulueta stormed out to win the first two rounds, looking to play the spoiler to the popular Philly attraction. But Percy clubbed Orlando to the mat to open the third round, and started

    his roll toward the decision. Bassett took most of the remaining rounds to seal the victory. The win pushed his record to 39-2 (24 KO). A few months later, these two would face off again, this time in Zulueta's backyard of Havana. And once again Bassett would take the decision over 10 rounds. Bassett fought on and won the Interim Featherweight title in 1953. Ultimately he would post a 64-12-1 (41 KO) record, although the world title shot he coveted eluded him. While Zulueta, the Cuban Lightweight Champ, would vie for the world championship at both 130 & 135 pounds. Years after his bout with Bassett, Orlando would return to Philadelphia to fight a thriller against Philly's Len Matthews at Convention Hall.

    MARCH 3, 1944


    BOBCAT BACK ON TOP

    On this day in 1944, Bob Montgomery, the Philadelphia Bobcat, clawed his way back to the top of the lightweight division with a 15-round split decision over Beau Jack, the man who had taken his title just four months before. The fight took place before a crowd of 19,066 dizzy fans at New York's hallowed hall, Madison Square Garden. Montgomery

    had to struggle to make the 135 pound limit, but his work in the steam room did the trick. The fight itself was a hard-fought battle where many of the rounds could have gone either way. Jack took the first two sessions before Montgomery strung together rounds three through nine. In the tenth, Montgomery's steam work and Jack's persistence started to take its toll. As Bob started to tire, Jack closed the gap. But Monty showed his stuff and kept fighting, even though his strength was sapped. The contest went the fifteen round limit and in the end, the official vote was split and close all the way around. With the win, Montgomery became the third man ever to regain the lightweight title. The previous two men to manage the feat were Lou Ambers & Beau Jack. Bob Montgomery and Beau Jack fought each other a total of four times in 1943 & 1944. Their rivalry was one of the great disputes of the lightweight division - four evenly matched bouts at the Garden - three for the title, all four matches went the full limit, 55 total rounds, with each man winning two fights. In their four bouts, the title changed three times. Although they were fierce opponents, Jack & Montgomery remained friends outside the ring.

    MARCH 5, 1948




    LESNEVICH BOMBS FOX IN REMATCH

    (The following excerpt is by Don Dunphy, from his book "Don Dunphy At Ringside" - copyright 1988 by Dunphy. Published by Henry Holt & Company).

    I'm sure you've heard of the "trap play" in football, but have you ever heard of one in boxing? I saw one in a light heavyweight championship bout at Madison Square Garden on March 5, 1948...

    In 1947, "Black Jack" Billy Fox, a young phenomenon from Philadelphia, amassed a terrifically impressive


    record and challenged Gus for the title at Madison Square Garden. It was a tough fight, but Lesnevich's greater experience carried him to victory over the youngster, whom he finally kayoed in ten rounds. But it was a tough and grueling fight for the champion.

    They were rematched at the Garden on March 5, 1948. On November 14, 1947, Fox had stopped indestructible Jake LaMotta in what became known as "the tainted bout." Now it was felt that Fox had the experience necessary to beat Lesnevich for the crown. He had given a good account of himself against Lesnevich in the first bout, and many thought he could unseat the champion, who had by then been fighting for fifteen years.

    I don't know what Lesnevich's thoughts were on the subject, but that night he introduced the trap play into boxing.

    At the bell, the champion and the challenger advanced cautiously toward each other. Lesnevich was known as a very slow starter, so I'm sure Fox wasn't surprised when Lesnevich grabbed him in a quick clinch. The referee broke them, and Gus quickly grabbed Billy a second time. They separated and Gus clinched again. You could see by the look on Billy's face that he was surprised at the clinching tactics of the champion. After the third clinch, Lesnevich moved toward Fox as though he would clinch again. Not to be outdone, Fox dropped his guard and so he could get a better grip on Lesnevich. But, wham! - it was no clinch. Gus fired a right-hand shot to Fox's unprotected jaw. It landed with terrific force right on the button and Fox went down and out in round one. Lesnevich was the winner and still champion, because of a well-executed trap play.
