    James J Jeffries

    The Boilermaker was not only undefeated in his prime but he broke the ribs of over half a dozen fighters that he fought including Tom Sharkey, Bob Fitzsimmons and Jim Corbett

    Incredibly......Jeffries offered to fight Sharkey, Fitzsimmons and Corbett again ALL IN THE SAME NIGHT one after another and they all turned him down

    Even the Great Sam Langford used to place newspaper ads for years offering to " fight any man in the World except Jim Jeffries "

    Nobody has ever punched as hard as the Boilermaker did

    Maybe the greatest pound for pound puncher was Stanley Ketchel, and middleweight who fought Jack Johnson even for I believe 10 rounds for the heavyweight title. Another incredible puncher was Max Baer who killed two men in the ring.
