    On the ropes



    Oct. 31, 1950: Bernard “Big Duke” Docusen hangs on to the ropes at end of the second round after taking several hard punches from John L. Davis. The referee halted the bout on a technical knockout immediately after third round started.

    Times sports writer Cal Whorton reported on the fight:

    John L. Davis, the cold, cruel fistic assassin out of Oakland, successfully defended his State welterweight championship last night by scoring a third-round t.k.o. over Bernard Docusen of New Orleans in the scheduled 12-round main go at the Olympic…

    Docusen, throwing fast left jabs while scooting in reverse, had an edge in the opening heat when Davis had trouble locating his target.

    Midway through the second, though, Davis got inside Docusen’s rangy arms and brought up a right which caught the handsome Filipino challenger on the chin. This so infuriated Big Duke that he started swapping with the champion, which was a mistake on Bernie’s part. There’s nothing Davis likes more than a foe who’ll stand up and trade with him.

    For nearly a minute the two whaled away with fiery leather to each other’s head. Neither seemed willing to give ground and the crowd of 4,900 patrons cheered both on with uncontrolled shouts.

    Then suddenly the slugging stopped and Docusen, who hardly knows the feel of canvas on his back, bounced on the deck after having caught a wicked right on the chin. He was down for a count of four.

    Davis, relentless as an enraged tiger, moved in again. He landed a left hook to the jaw and Docusen stumbled into the ropes, from where he took a two-count from Referee Johnny Indrisano. When action resumed, Davis continued the brutal attack a few more seconds until the bell mercifully saved the wavy-haired challenger.

    But by this time it was obvious that Big Duke’s tour of duty was limited. En route to his corner he once fell through the ropes. He was out but didn’t know enough to admit it….

    When the third round started, Indrisano stopped the fight after eight seconds and awarded Davis the victory.

    This photo led the next day’s Times Sports section front. The image won several awards for staff photographer Larry Sharkey, including best sports photo in the Associated Press statewide contest and first prize in an annual nationwide sports photo contest conducted by E.P. Dutton Co.

    In 1948 Docusen lost a close world welterweight title fight to Sugar Ray Robinson. He passed away in 2009, but his website is still active.

    Art "Golden Boy" Aragon, The Fight Magazine 1953..

    Art's regard for Lauro Salas was further illustrated when he stated, "I'll take on Kid Gavilan for 50 percent of the gate, and I'd meet Sugar Ray Robinson when he was champ if they gave me 60 percent. But, you know, I'd fight that Lauro Salas for nothing." He did. The two squared off in the Sunset Boulevard cafe. Reports on the extemporaneous battle varied widley, since no accommodations were made for a press row to render a professional analysis. Some versions had it that the encounter lasted 15 minutes; others, that it lasted 45 minutes. In any event, the customers were treated to one of the wildest floor shows ever seen anywhere merely for the price of a beer..

    Re: History of California Boxing in Photos



    I was looking over some photos from the WBHF of 2004 and I was bummed out when I saw this photo and some others from that event. Look at that. Genero Hernandez, Kenny Lane and Mando Ramos all gone. Moreover, I came across photos containing Ernie Lopez, Diego Corrales, Joe Miceli and Danny Valdiva who have all since left this plane. Guys, we have to keep our HOF's, events, interviews and stories going for posterity.

    A CHICANA IN HEAVEN!

    A middle aged Chicana had a heart attack and was taken

    to the hospital.

    While on the operating table, she had a near death experience

    and the Creator appeared before her.

    Seeing the Creator, she asked, "Dios mio, is my time

    up?"

    Dios said, "No mijita, you have another 43 years, two months and eight days to live."

    The Chicana decided to stay in the hospital and have the

    works done: face-lift, liposuction, chi-chi lift, nalga lift and pansa

    tuck. (Write back if you need spanglish-translation)

    She was all excited because she knew she had a long life

    ahead and wanted to look bien chingona!

    After her final operation, she was released from the hospital.

    While crossing the street on her way to a taqueria, she was hit and killed by a bus.

    Arriving in front of the Creator, she demanded, "Orale

    pues...que Paso? I thought you said I had another 40 years to go? Why didn't you pull me out of the path of that pinche bus?"

    The Creator replied, "Orale chica, I didn't recognize you

    Boxing News May 14, 1947

    Bob Montgomery, who disputes the world's lightweight title with Ike Williams, had matters all his own way when he disposed of Joey Barnum, a local lad, at Los Angeles recently. The Bobcat was loudly booed as he left the ring, chiefly because of an after-the-bell punch that sent his opponent to one knee. Barnum was floored early in the seventh round, got up, but was out on his feet when the referee stopped the fight....

    Boxing News April 28, 1948

    ALTHOUGH it is generally agreed that Enrique Bolanos, the Californian lightweight, is the logical contender for Ike Williams' world championship, there are two other boys who will be treading on his coat-tails pretty heavily before the year is out. Bolanos clashes with the champion at Los Angeles on May 26 and it will be a return meeting. just over two years ago they met in the same town when Ike won by a knockout in eight rounds, but a lot happened since then. Williams beat Bob Montgomery for the undisputed possession of the 135 Ib. bauble, but there are suspicions that the Trenton title-holder is slipping just a teeny-weeny bit. Bolanos had 18 fights after the title affair to the end of last year and he won 13 of them by the knock out route, four others were points victories and one was drawn. No losses. It is quite a record and he should make Ike travel. Leading lights to challenge the winner of the Williams-Bolanos clash are Johnny Williams, from Montgomery, Alabama, and Freddie Dawson, the Chicago flash..

    Rios is a 2-fisted transformer

    Unbeaten Oxnard fighter goes from a jail cell to a world championship in just two years.

    By Robert Morales, Staff Writer
    SGVT
    07/07/2011

    Brandon Rios stood outside Fortune Boxing Gym on Tuesday. He appeared relaxed and loose, the picture of contentment.

    And why not? He went from wearing jail jumpsuits in Kansas just two years ago to a lightweight world championship belt in February, courtesy of his 10th-round stoppage of Miguel Acosta of Venezuela at The Palms Casino in Las Vegas.

    Oxnard's Rios, who Saturday will make his first defense against Urbano Antillon (28-2, 20 KOs) of Maywood at Home Depot Center (on Showtime), told this newspaper ahead of the Acosta fight that meeting and marrying his wife went a long way in turning around his life, which had been filled with too many short stints in jail.

    Rios reiterated that Tuesday. But that wasn't his first thought in the moments following his stoppage of Acosta.

    "I was happy because I made my dad's dream come true," said Rios, who decked Acosta three times. "Ever since I was a little kid, I always told my dad (Manuel) I was going to become a world champion. I told my dad all the time. Everybody didn't believe me, but my dad. My dad was the only one that believed me.

    "When I became world champion, when I knocked out Acosta, that's what mostly got me."

    Rios isn't the only one feeling proud as a peacock about his metamorphosis. His Hall of Fame promoter, Bob Arum, is equally stoked that Rios has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse.

    "We tend to forget how young these guys are and a lot of
    Advertisement
    it has to do with maturity," said Arum, who was wearing dressy shorts inside of the oven that is most boxing gyms. "When they're young kids and they're very hyper, usually, sometimes they're uncontrollable.

    "Once they get older, the smarter ones, the fortunate ones, develop maturity and they realize that they can't conduct their lives in that irresponsible way. ... So while he's as ferocious as he ever was in the ring, he's a lot more grounded now than he was before."

    Street fights were what got Rios in the most trouble. One resulted in a two-month stint in the slammer. His trainer, Robert Garcia, had difficulty keeping Rios in Oxnard, where Rios had moved from Kansas to train with Garcia. But when things got to a point where Garcia wasn't sure if they would turn around, he and Rios' manager Cameron Dunkin stepped in.

    "We brought him in and took over his career," Garcia said. "And I told myself and Cameron Dunkin, `Let's keep giving him a chance, let's keep going, because he's got a great heart and tremendous talent.' We didn't give up and now we're in good position."

    To Rios, the victory over a champion like Acosta was the ultimate climax completing his turn-around.

    "In the Miguel Acosta fight, I think I showed the world that I have a lot of heart and that I love boxing a lot and that I love the business," said Rios, 25. "After the first couple of rounds, the way Acosta was doing his job, I kept to my game plan and I overcame it and I knocked him out.

    "I think I impressed a lot of people."

    As Garcia said, Rios is now in good position. At 27-0-1 and 20 knockouts, he is an outstanding fighter who has the opportunity to make an indelible mark on boxing.

    "There are just so many things out there that Bob Arum could do (for Rios)," Garcia said. "I've talked to Cameron Dunkin and there are just so many things. Especially in his weight division, then moving up to 140 in the future, there are so many fights out there that are possible and that I know Bob Arum can make happen.

    "Brandon knows how important this is. He knows the importance of winning this fight and what can come after that."

    Rios could cash in quite nicely. But Arum cautioned that because of the way Rios fights - toe-to-toe - his window may not be open as long as others.

    "He's always going to be in a tough fight, which means that his career will be shorter rather than longer because there's a limit to what you can keep absorbing," Arum said. "I believe that he can earn a lot of money, which is the name of the game."

    He won't have to use any of it for bail, either.

    Cohen talks

    "I killed nobody that didn't deserve killing. In all of these here killings there was no alternative. You couldn't call them cold-blooded killings.... It was either my life or theirs."
    Mickey Cohen

    May 19, 1957
    Los Angeles

    I suppose in hindsight it's easy to see why interviewing Mickey Cohen on live television was a bad idea. But at the time, as Mike Wallace admits, it seemed like a wonderful coup against the competition.

    If you don't know anything about Cohen, you might not understand what an outspoken and profane man he was. But Wallace certainly knew. And those viewers who skipped Dr. Joyce Brothers on the "$64,000 Challenge" experienced an obscene tirade from the little mobster.

    Unfortunately, the original newspaper accounts give very little of Cohen's remarks except to say they were unprintable. "Cohen was interviewed over a national ABC network show last night and admitted he has killed at least one man in self-defense," The Mirror said. "He hurled a series of unprintable charges against [Los Angeles Police Chief William H.] Parker.

    " 'Gestapo tactics' was the kindest phrase he used. The laws governing libel and slander prohibit repetition of the charges in a newspaper," The Mirror said.

    But some information can be gleaned from news accounts. In addition to claiming that he had killed a man, Cohen said his gambling operations once handled $600,000 in bets and that politicians needed him at election time and allowed him to operate with impunity.

    He also said: "My sources of power were higher than former Mayor Bowron's and former Police Chief Horrall's."

    Former Mayor Fletcher Bowron, who had returned to the Superior Court bench after being elected mayor in the 1938 recall of Frank Shaw, said it was beneath his dignity to respond to Cohen's allegations. Former Chief Clemence B. "Jack" Horrall, who headed the LAPD during World War II, said Cohen operated in the county rather than the city. "He tried to operate in the city and we ran him out," Horrall said. "Cohen's a liar."

    But ABC-TV made a critical error. Recall that this was before the days of videotape. Instead, shows were preserved on kinescopes in which a movie camera filmed images on a TV picture tube, and these were shown on the West Coast three hours later. Although ABC executives had no idea what Cohen was going to say on the live show, they were well aware of Cohen's comments and decided to proceed with the West Coast broadcast three hours later.

    Former Mirror reporter Cliff Dektar, who was handling publicity for ABC in Los Angeles, recalls watching the show with The Times TV critic at the network's studios:

    "I hosted Cecil Smith, Times TV critic at the ABC TV Center executive viewing room, Prospect and Talmadge.

    "Outrageous, and the phone rang. It was lawyer in NY. l say nothing (there is a reporter sitting next to me).

    "Parker and [Police Capt. James] Hamilton (the intelligence squad captain) gave ABC and WC head Earl Hudson opportunity to cancel WC repeat (kinescope) and get out trouble...Mr. Hudson declined and Hamilton won a major slander suit against ABC.

    "It was a most interesting event...oh yes...took Cecil and his wife to dinner following."

    Parker was furious, and turned down a network offer to respond on Wallace's show the next week. "That sort of thing is more insidious than Confidential," Parker said. "You have to go down to the newsstand to buy a magazine and you get this in your living room."

    "As a police officer, I am used to being shot at. But how can a person like Cohen be allowed to assassinate my character?" Parker said.

    ABC issued an apology the next week, but the controversy continued.

    Enrique Bolanos,

    Enrique Bolanos does something that our other local lightweights do not do-he stops most of his imported opponents. He isn't a terrific puncher, but he does hit solidly and possesses the fighting spirit to finish a foe, once he has him hurt. Lulu Costantino was the fiery Mexican's latest K.0. victim. And it was the first time in his career that Lulu didn't go the distance. It happened in the 7th round at the Los Angeles Olympic before a sellout crowd of 10,400.
    Costantino is still a clever defensive boxer and a cutie in all departments of the game, but these smoothies never have bothered Bolanos too much. The New Yorker was the artful dodger at times, and he scored a few points in occasional spurts, but most of the time he was bicycling to escape punishment. A hard one-two early in the 7th put Costantino flat on his back. He arose at the count of 7 in a dazed condition and backed into the ropes, with hands dangling at his sides. Enrique sprang in for the kill, rocked the Italian with a left and right before referee Johnny Indrisano could move in to stop it. Each weighed 134..

    Art "Golden Boy" Aragon/Bolton Ford, Fight-26th August 1949,

    During the rest period after the opening round of his clash with Art Aragon, 136, at the Hollywood Stadium, Bolton Ford, 136, Pittsburgh, appeared very much at ease. He had just garnered the first round with a few rights to the body, had not been hit a solid blow, and was probably recalling his start in this ring last winter when he scored the upset of the year. What Ford didn't realize was that Aragon had held back and was coolly planning the pittsburgher's doom. Aragon took over in the second round. The Golden Boy (You're welcome, Art) sunk a couple of hooks into Ford's furnace. Bolton lowered his guard-and Aragon lowered the boom! A left hook put the muscular Pittsburgher flat on his back, looking up and seeing the roof still there. Bolton scrambled to his feet at the count of seven. Aragon moved in quickly and dropped Ford with another left hook to the button. Bolton was up at the count of 3 this time, but he was wearing the expression of a guy in love and when referee Johnny Indrisano saw that far away look in Ford's eyes-the setto was declared over..
