Indianapolis Sun – Choynski Puts down Johnson With Big Left

As the only man who ever knocked out Jack Johnson, the present champion of the world, it might be inferred that I possess considerable knowledge of this great black man who is soon, let us hope, to meet James J. Jeffries for the world’s greatest honor in pugilism.

Perhaps I have such knowledge, but at the start let me advise my readers that they must not expect too much of me. I have some opinions and in response to the request of the Indianapolis Sun, am writing them. But I crave indulgence of the statement that they are merely opinions.

The Lucky 13 Draw of Luck McCarty

The date is March 17, 1892, five years before Bob Fitzsimmons buried a left hook up the gut of James J. Corbett to claim his World Heavyweight Title in Carson, City, Nevada. 

Tucked in a tiny enclave so obscure that it’s scarcely remembered today, Driftwood Creek, Nebraska, another legend of the ring and future heavyweight champion of the world was born, Luther “Luck” McCarty.
