Were talking with friends about the origin of welterweights, and a french journalist wrote that the origin of the word welterweight was a **** fighter bred of Philippines. Do you know if this welter **** exists anymore? Any pics?

Default Re: calamaro's Welterweights and Bantamweights

calamaro's unfortunate thread got locked, but he was asking about
the term "welterweight" possibly originating from a breed of fighting
rooster from the Philippines.

http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=676470

I think he may have been thinking of the term "bantamweight":
The term was based on rather smallish roosters that had become
associated with the Javan province of Bantam, although it seems
the birds weren't at all indigenous to Bantam, but instead native
to the Philippines and perhaps Sumatra.

The term "welterweight" seems to have derived from slang "welter",
denoting agile street-fighters: so named for the bruises (or "welts")
they inflicted on their victims. Interestingly, the term "welterweight"
as a sport weightclass was first adopted for equestrians, before it
was applied to boxers.

hth, calamaro.

Bantam is literally gallo in spanish, if i'm not wrong. But welter its most intriguing. A welterweight was called a jockey too fat in the world of horseracing. The reference to a philipine "gallo" it's from a book from Pierre Cangioni, who is a prestigious french journalist, so I was intriguing. But nobody seems to say a clear origin of the word. Thanks for your answer.
