KITTEN HAYWARD IN ACTION
On this day Stanley Kitten Hayward saw ring action in two different years. First in 1963, Kitten suffered a loss in an important bout. In his second trip to Madison Square Garden, Kitten blew a high profile match up by dropping a 10-rounder to Jose Stable. His trademark overconfidence played a role. But it was all business afterward as Kitten next reeled off some of his best-ever wins. Then in 1967, on this same date, Hayward KO'd Pete Toro at Convention Hall in 9 rounds. Stanley was one of Philly's most colorful battlers.
