Default School me on Bennie Briscoe

His pime years were just a tab before my time and a sort of mythic figure as the prototype Philly tough-guy fighter of the day.

He held his own against the best but seemed to mostly come up short - by a hair - when it mattered the most.

What I've seen on video, seems to be persistent and steady but not overwhelming. I know he has a lot of KOs but I'd gather more of them were from wearing down opponents than being a savage puncher.

For those more familiar, what made him really good and what kept him from being good enough to get over against the top guys?

Prime Briscoe was a tough SOB, he could box, punch,take a good shot,never intimidated and was an experienced tough guy. One of my favorite Philly fighters

I've always been curious about him myself. Never seen any of his fights.

didn't lose as many fights as his record says due to being a willing opponent, did usually lose to the top guys though.

the mustafa muhamad fight is worth watching( its on youtube as is quite a few of his fights).

Very possibly the most homicidal-looking guy I've seen in a boxing ring.

Been watching some of his fights and he looks the real deal to me. That right hand he hit Monzon with was a *******!
