Knockout Boxers

The ancient sport of boxing became centered in the United States in the early 20th century. Many immigrants and African Americans there saw boxing as an opportunity to gain riches and status. Here are a few who emerged as champions.
Jack Johnson
The first African American to win the heavyweight title (1908) is regarded by many boxing observers to be one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.
Joe Louis
The Brown Bomber was world heavyweight boxing champion from 1937 to 1949. He successfully defended his title 25 times, more than any other boxer in any division.
Sugar Ray Robinson
Many consider the six-time world champion (1946–60) to have been the best fighter in history.
What about women?
Women boxers still struggle to gain acceptance by the establishment, but in 2012 women’s boxing became an official Olympic sport. Nicola Adams was the first flyweight to win agold medal.
