Re: How much of 'The Killings of Stanley Ketchel' is truth?
Fleischer devotes an entire chapter in 50 years at ringside to Ketchel. He rates him as the greatest middleweight ever.....fearless and one punch ko power in either fist. Personally Fleischer was very friendly with Ketchel and spoke of him fondly. Supposedly Stanley was very fond of playing practical jokes especially with those from the press.
