Papp turned pro in 1957 when Lemeshev was 5 years old, they never fought.
I stand corrected. It was pietrzykowski (The guy Ali beat) who defeated papp at the tail end of his career. They fought x3 and Papp defeated him twice i believe.

I am very interested in the history of the Soviet and Cuban fighters and if i make the odd mistake in my posting then so be it.

I don't really have enough time to delve into the subject as i would like to so feel free to highlight certain things u disagree with, but don't make the mistake of thinking i am stupid!

Thankyou for your post.
