    I haven't seen a Referee and Redhead in over 50 years.

    Thanks Dan

    Dan:

    One month later to the day, Referee Bob Shand figured prominently in another California boxing first after handing down a draw verdict in a bout between prestigious Tommy Loughran and a local favorite son, Buck Holly.

    Shand was a popular northern California sports writer and an experienced referee but when he was vociferously and widely criticized for his decision in the above bout, he felt terribly slighted and announced his retirement as an arbiter.

    Dan:

    I just caught sight of your post, and yes, I had seen the Aragon "funny ad" before. In fact, Artie had those words put on a large billboard when he first began his bail bond business.

    Jim Murray. columnist for the L.A. Times did a whole article on Artie's many jokes and quick comebacks in conversation. We had him training at the Hollywood Legion Stadium back in 1949 and he would exasperate his teacher, Jack Chase, by crawling under the bottom ring rope instead of hopping through the strands.

    Always good for a laugh, he was.

    He definitely was quite a character. The bill is a classic!

    He also wasn't shy in front of a camera.

    Re: History of California Boxing in Photos

    More Dan:

    That first photo you posted showing Artie with Bill Holden was all my doing. As a publicity man for Hollywood Legion Stadium where we were building up Artie. I thought it would be good to try and get Holden to bequeath his Golden Boy monicker to Aragon, who was being called that by the daily press.
    So I walked over to Columbia Studios, corner of Gower and Sunset in Hollywood and connected with their publicity director, Jimmy O"Toole, who thought it would be a great gimmick even for Holden.

    The upshot was that Bill Holden showed up at the Legion fights one night and hopped into the ring to hand over his Golden Boy title to Artie. The very first newsman who referred to Aragon by that name was our good pal Johnny Allen, boxing expert for the old. now defunct, L.A. Daily news. Since everyone else began to address Artie that way, I dreamed up the stunt that would kinda make the title "official".

    The photo at the bottom of your post shows Artie with actors Dick Powell and Ricardo Montalban, who just happened to be filming a movie with a boxing theme at that time.
