nothing wrong with his punching in the rematch..

look how much tax he paid here, considering the total purse he got....and he still was in trouble with taxes after he retired....government certainly did well out of him..

aparently he earned 4.6 million in his career, but after paying everyone he only pocketed 800,000...yet at the end of the 50's he got a tax bill for 1 million dollars !!

Hello Dougie hope you doing good and thanks so much for putting this up - very bizarre never knew about some guy impersonating him?? I know there was that guy who impersonated was it Bob Satterfirld or Clarence Henry or someone - pretty tragic stories both fighter and impersonator - but really fascinated with Honey Boy - anything more you can dig up on him is greatly appreciated - keep em comin
