Default Re: Best fighter from Ohio, ever?

Soose was from a little town right on the PA/OH border called Farrell.

Farrell is real close to Youngstown, Ohio and Soose used to spend a lot of time there. Thats probably why you confuse him with being an Ohio fighter.

He later won a scholarship to Penn State where he became a star amateur boxer and trained under Leo Houck who had been a contender two decades earlier.

He was a good fighter but the war ended his career.

Despite winning a piece of the title he boxed less than four years as a professional.

In retirement he live in Western Pennsylvania and operated a resort in the Poconos.
