As you may know latelty i have been questioning alot of greats. But here's one man's greatness who can NEVER be questioned......

The man was a fearless freak of nature. This man held 3 titles at the same time, when there will ONLY 8 weight divisions in boxing and only ONE title.

While he was Featherweight Champion he went all the way up to 147 and beat ATG Barney Ross to win the title, in argubaly the greatest single win of all time.

At one point Armstrong went a straight 46-0 with 39 KO's. He avoided no one and had one of the best resume of wins over all time.

The word "beast" gets thrown around too much when describing fighters or athletes in general. Henry Armstrong, though, was a true BEAST. Dude would bring it and bring it hard and if you couldn't keep up with him, you were in for a long (or very short...) night.

And he did it without even looking at you.

He became a minister.

I saw him on the classic TV game show, I've Got a Secret

If I recall correctly, he stumped the panel. It was awesome.
