Default New Year's trivia: 5 easy(?) questions for the boxing historian.

Since this is the history section, why not kick off the new year with a little boxing trivia? No prizes - just for the fun of it!

We are seeking the names of the 5 men described below:


1.
He was the youngest man ever with 100 documented (boxrec) fights under his belt.


hhascup: Ted Kid Lewis (not yet 19 years old!)

2.
He lost to more world champions than any other boxer.


hhascup: Angel Robinson Garcia (lost to 15 world champs)

3.
He was the winner of the first olympic bout that took place between two future world champions.


eyeofdatiger: Matt Wells (beat Valdemar Holberg in 1908 in London)

4.
He was 2-6 in world title fight... against a total of just 3 opponents
.

Bigdaddy_Vh: Jersey Joe Walcott

5.
He never won the world heavyweight crown... but he fought more men who challenged for this title than any other non-champion.


hhascup: Joe Bugner (17)


(Time limit: 3 days)

Good guesses - but only Walcott is correct.

Archie Moore was actually close to 30, when he reached fight number 100 - so he's definitely not our man. Nor is Howard Davis in the 3rd question.

But George Chuvalo is a VERY good guess... only a couple of guys ahead of him in this category!

Sorry, but only Walcott is a right answer - though Greb, Zivic and Shavers are all pretty good guesses, I think.

QUESTION 1. Youngest to reach 100 fights.

My first thought was Harry Greb, but the OP said that was incorrect. My next two guesses both reached there when they were about 26. Joe Gans and Henry Armstrong.

Joe Gans was younger: 25 years 11 months. Armstrong was 26 years and 3 months.

Good questions. Thx for the trivia.

No... I'm afraid, it isn't Gans either.

The man we are looking for was world champion - and much, MUCH younger than Gans, when he reached the 100 mark!
