reminded me a lot of David Tua. Heavy, short, stocky, powerful.

When he was actually in good shape he was actually pretty damn good.

The guy was one of the wildest characters in history. There are so many stories about him, I'm suprised they haven't made a movie about him. It was in the planning stages with Bert Young to play him but the plans fell apart.

I've always thought that Galento was a natural to have a film made about him. A wrestling match he had later in his career with Jack Doyle I believe (who was another incredible character) sounds hysterical.

I could easily see a Galento movie becoming one of my favorites.

Say what you want about him but for a fat 5'7 heavyweight that looks like a joke he gave a prime joe louis a decent fight. I think he even dropped him if I remember correctly.
