Re: The Alabama Kid
He is a very obscure fighter. even more than normal it seems. John Cappazella is the manager that he started out with in Dover Ohio. I sat and talked with this older man it seemed like everyday after school in his grocery store. He was a dreaded southpaw with plenty of power. I know that his manager told me that he beat Arturo Goodoy when he started fighting heavy weights and Goodoy took Louis the limit once.
