The molestation charges were not mentioned in either the Nat Fleischer or Jack Read biographies. Apparently the incident happen not long after he had arrived on US shores.

No great surprise. I've seen a few docos over the decades which mentioned Griffo as a sporting great of Australia and not a single mention

I'd done a fair bit of reading on Griffo in days gone by and it seems his legend at avoiding punches is greater than the sum of his achievements, odd as that may sound
