Default What little known top Bronx heavyweight prospect...

...during Marciano's reign...is now a highly respected character heavy in movies.

It'll surprise me if anyone gets this. He used to spar with Carmine Vingo.

Nope. He was 198 pounds. A perfect physical specimen. Shoulders like Max Baer 'n waist like a welterweight.
