    I didn't know that Ruben Olivares came from an affluent background...I find that mind-boggling. Can anyone tell me more about Ruben's origins?

    Re: History of California Boxing in Photos

    This kid looked like a sure winner early in his career. I publicized his bouts at Hollywood Legion Stadium as their Boxing Publicity director in the late 1940s.

    For some unknown reason, probably as an identification dodge, he fought under an assumed name. His real name escapes me at present, although I do have it filed somewhere. Several Sonora, Mexico fighters took other ring names for their showings in the U.S.

    He might have been a minor when he first applied for a California license under the management of old time boxer Martin Zuniga, who was once one of the better prospects developed by George Blake at the time Fidel La Barba was the stable star.

    Montes had two encounters with boxing master Jesse Flores at Hollywood that were really classic boxer-versus-puncher bouts, both won by Flores. Montes had one major flaw as a fighter----he was rather slow afoot, so was usually outpointed by stylish boxers. However, he was a very good puncher, winning over any guy he could nail with either mitten.

    His Johnny Depp appearance in the above photo belies his hefty hitting power.
