What do you guys think about Joe Gans? Has anyone seen any film of him?
i've seen some film of him, and he definelely is p4p an all-time great. i heard that they used to blindfold about 4 or 5 black men and let them beat eachother up blindfolded in the ring until there was one man standing! and the winner got something like $5! and that was how gans learned boxing! pretty interesting, huh?
