@4: What is the definition in this question. I can see you said Pep. I took Macfarland because I knew he had a ridiculously long and unbeaten career (75 fights). When I think about it again I probably could also had picked Julio Cesar Chavez.


@8: :pat: I read the Q as African and not african-american. I knew that would be Gans. :grr:

@35: I said Dempsey. Does anybody remember what famous fight he refereed?

I was thinking of Chavez also but since Pep was 135-1 I don't think that has been eqaulled.

I think he refereed numerous fights I can't recall any of them, though.

To nitpick a bit: An undefeated record has a better win ratio than anyone with a loss.

Anyway Ray Robinson also had a record at about 130-1 before losing to Turpin.

As for Dempsey I just checked boxrec. He refereed a ton of fights. I didn't know he had such an extensive career as a referee. Skimming through the fights I see no biggies, so I reckon I in my haste in filling out the quiz, mistook Dempsey for someone else. Possibly Joe Walcott (Clay-Liston).

Yeah to be honest I couldn't think of anyone with that wider record so I just picked him.

I knew Dempsey refereed lots of fights but couldn't think of any off the top of my head.
