I'll make sure I come back to this later.

For a long time Bimstein was the George Benton to Ray Arcel's Lou Duva (albiet Arcel was zillions of times greater than Duva).

Just a guess but what about Maxie Baer.

The 'you wouldn't be suprised at the name' hint is what inclines me towards Madcap Maxie, but then going against Maxie is that he not only fought Louis but took his licks and then some as well.

I'd like to know...it couldn't be too hard to narrow down given a) is a Hvy, b) trained/cornered by Bimstein, c) during Louis' reign, d) fought in an outside/open air promotion, e) was stopped after at least the 3rd rd, and f) was a contender at that stage.
