Why Journeymen fighters are boxing’s blood line

While the casual boxing fan will quite often express their interest only in the main event of a show card, the so called “journeyman” will always have the support of some of the biggest names in the sport, most notably the promoters of a show. So many forget how important, perhaps even necessary, these fighters are to boxing, especially when comes the time a scheduled opponent pulls out of a fight at short notice. Quite often, a promoter will call upon a journeyman fighter at short notice to fill in an opponent’s place, saving an undercard or, although more rarely, a main attraction. It is unfortunate that these guys receive so little respect for what they do as it is often said that they are boxing’s life line. Without them, the value of a night’s worth of fights is decreased. Another much less talked about aspect is that journeymen often give a rising star fighter the necessary experience he needs. While journeymen fighters do not often hear the MC shout their names in victory or have their hand held high to a raucous crowd, they collect a wealth of experience, something that is often passed on to opponents of a superior calibre.

He was possibly the greatest light heavyweight of all time

He was possibly the greatest light heavyweight of all time, The wily “Old Mongoose” Archie Moore. The man who scored 140 knockouts in a career that spanned from 1936 to 1963 never lost his crown in the ring. Although he unsuccessfully challenged twice for the heavyweight title, he did campaign successfully among the “Big Boys” throughout his tenure as a professional boxer. His record reads like “Who’s Who” of boxing history. In 228 recorded bouts, Archie was only stopped seven time. A testimony to his courage and uncanny defensive ability.
