Default Re: Interesting Boxing Statistics Thread

Dunno how true these are but I favourited this boxing fact website years ago:

1. Youngest World Champion: WILFRED BENITEZ
2. Oldest World Champion/Heavyweight Champion: GEORGE FOREMAN
3. Youngest Heavyweight Champion: MIKE TYSON
4. Most Consecutive wins without loss: Hal Bagwell (180 fights, 175 wins, 2 draws, 3 no decision from 1938-194
5. Most consecutive KOs: Lamark Clark (44 KOs in a row)
6. Longest World Champion: Joe Louis (11 years 7 month)
7. Most Crowded Audience: CHAVEZ VS GREG HAUGEN

Also from the same site lmao:

Sam Russell was the referee of a featherweight match between Johnny Curley and Joe Fox in Brighton. In the first round, a wild punch blew Russell, and broke his glasses he wore. The match then was postponed for sometime, because Russell tried the best glasses for his eyes from the audience. Then, being unpatient, the audience created a riot in the arena. Referre Russell was so scared he ran to save himself and hid under the ring. He then announced the night's boxing result from there.
