He would not have been champ.

Unlike the movie.
The real Hurrican had drop out of the top ten, and was on the decline.

The movie was nearly sued by the guy he was fighting in that movie where he allegedly was robbed. In reality, The Hurricane was actually beaten in convincing fashion. I need to find that article.

Did boxing judges really steal the middleweight title from Carter by robbing him of a victory against Joey Giardello as portrayed in the film?


As a result of his depiction in the film, Joey Giardello threatened to sue the filmmakers for defamation. Nearly all of the sportswriters who attended the December 1964 bout agreed that Giardello won handily.

It's hard to have any respect for a murderer. Regardless he had no brains to manage his career properly. He was talented enough to hold a belt, but lacked focus and faded rapidly.

** Wrong.

He had his case overturned because of legal technicalities. Since he had already served a long time and witnesses had died, the prosecutor's office decided not to retry him since the best they could do would be a conviction for the time already served.

Everyone associated with the case with the exception him believes he murdered those people. He was never found innocent of anything, and probably he ends up back in prison, although he wisely left the country to prevent any minor infractions from retriggering an interest in retrying him.
