Default Re: The 1960's Heavyweights - 'Really A Flawed Group'

Why do you say that,,,,,He was a lovely human being.

Pete Rademacher, qualifies as a 1960's 'flop'.

By January 1, 1960 - the 31 year-old Washington State Heavyweight,
and former 1956 Olympic Heavyweight Gold Medal Winner, had a record
of 5-2-0 (3 KO's).

Yes, he fought and lost to 'flawed' Champion - Floyd Patterson in his professional
debut, even flooring the 'china-chinned' Champion.

But Pete failed to impress after that.

In 1960, a Decision and Draw in Germany, then a disaster 'knockout loss'
to Brian London in the United Kingdom sent him out of the Top 20.

Pete, would bounce back with '7' straight wins, including victories over
Lamar Clark, George Chuvalo and Kirk Barrow which edged Pete into the
Top 20 Heavyweights.

But '3' knockout losses in a row to Doug Jones, George Logan and Archie
Moore pretty much finished him in 1962, with a record of 15-7-1 {8 KO's}.
