A rarely seen photo of Manuel Ortiz's kid brother, Trini Ortiz, circa 1943. The boy only had a few bouts, nothing extraordinary.

Funny seeing Castillo mugging for the camera. Everything I've seen or heard about him from people around him always said he was an introvert and sullen most of the time, so this is an eye-opening pic.

Mickey Cohen

Boxing Career

Mickey Cohen was born Meyer H. Cohen, in the Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn. He moved to Los Angeles in 1920 with his family, where they ran a drug store. He spent much of his career boxing in the Midwest, primarily in Cleveland. His most notable bout was a 1st-round knockout loss to Featherweight champion Tommy Paul

Mafia Career

Cohen initially worked for the Chicago Outfit, headed by Al Capone, but was eventually forced to relocated to Los Angeles due to several confrontations with various gamblers and mobsters.

Working in Los Angeles, he became the bodyguard for Jewish mobster Bugsy Seigel. Seigel was murdered in 1947, and Cohen began to work for Frankie Carbo, whose mob syndicate took over the Los Angeles area.

Cohen was eventually thrown in jail for four years for tax evasion, and would be thrown in prison once more for tax evasion, serving that sentence in the famous Alcatraz prison.

Cohen died in his sleep in 1976.

Hedgemon Lewis, Mando Ramos and Ernie "Indian Red" Lopez

Dress to the nines. That's how boxers from the not too distant past used to dress.
