Tom Molineaux was the first American to fight for the Heavyweight title in England. Molineaux, born into slavery, was raised on a plantation in Virginia. Learning that he could eventually fight his way out of slavery, Molineaux began participating in bare knuckle fights against neighboring slaves, in events that were arranged by the slave owners. Molineaux was indeed granted his freedom after winning his last bout as a slave, but decided to travel (as a deck hand) to England after hearing about better opportunities for fighters. While in London, Molineux frequently referred to himself as the “American champion,” even though there was no such thing at the time. Molineux also professed that he could beat anyone. After name checking the retired, hall of fame legend, and ex-champion Tom Cribb, Cribb demanded Molineux defeat his protégé Bill Burrows–whom Molineux dispatched of easily. When Molineux faced Cribb, he dominated the Brit early, drawing first blood and dropping the ex-champ in the 28th round. Based on the rules at the time, Molineux should have won at that moment, but Cribb’s trainer accused Molineux of holding bullets to make his punches harder. After a quick investigation yielded no evidence, the referee allowed them to continue, but by then Molineaux, tired and dizzy from hitting his head on a ring post collapsed. Molineaux got an immediate rematch, but Cribb took no chances in training and broke Molineux’s jaw as he knocked him out in the 11th. Molineaux never fought for the title again. He became an alcoholic and died of tuberculosis at 34 years of age.

Joe Gans (born Joseph Gant) was an African-American boxer, born in Baltimore, Maryland, who was rated the greatest Lightweight boxer of all time by boxing historian and Ring Magazine founder, Nat Fleischer. Known as the “Old Master,” Gans was the first black man to win the world Lightweight title, which he won by first-round knockout over Frank Erne in May of 1902. Gans’ record was an incredible 158-12-20, 100 KOs, and he once fought three times in one night. For more on Gans, check out “The Longest Fight” by William Gildea which looks at the 42-round war fought by Gans against “Battling” Nelson–the third longest bout in boxing history.

At only 5'8", Sam Langford was one of the shortest and greatest Heavyweights who never got a shot at the title. He was so feared by his contemporaries, that before agreeing to fight, they sought guarantees that he would “be merciful.” He often did so anyway, because of his limited opportunities and to ensure that he could get rematches. He fought many of the same opponents–often in the predicament he found himself in–multiple times, as a result of the “color line” imposed on the world titles. He was nicknamed the “Boston Tar Baby” among others, a nod to the racial attitudes of the day. In the end, Langford died blind and penniless after a career that spanned five weight classes, surpassing well over 300 bouts and saw him face and defeat several hall of fame legends.

Oscar De La Hoya | “Look, I can take a page from my mentor Bob Arum’s book and say, ‘Well, you’ve got to let it marinate,’ or I can go and say, 'Let’s go! Let’s do it!’

Let me talk to my team, let me talk to 'Canelo,’ discuss how he’s feeling … we don’t know, we’ll see.

The bottom line is we have 'the guy.’ We have 'the guy’ for many years, and it’s going to be a lot of fun putting together some big fights. We haven’t even seen the best of Canelo yet.”
