Default Guess the fighter

I beat Kid Norfolk, Sam Langford, Joe Jeannette, Luther McCarty, Battling Jim Johnson, and Battling Levinsky. I also drew with Harry Wills. * Some of these are news decisions.


Some reports refer to me as the Uncle of Jersey Joe Walcott. Yet I never got a title shot, and few remember my name.

Wills was also a novice.

Its funny how the threadmaker confidently avers Clark was" very underated "[he may well have been], yet a guy he fought three times and never beat ,getting two draws and being stopped in the other was ,according to him, "a journeyman". Battling Jim Johnson is the man.. There's no mystery why Clark did not get a title shot he was too inconsistant and also black. .

Clark beat
Langford a couple of times ,[ himself not always consistant], he also was beaten by Bert Kenney ,a Johnson sparring partner, and drew with Kid Cutler, another Johnson sparring partner.

Clark beat Kid Norfolk once , he also was beaten by him 5 times and held to a draw three times.

Given his up and down form ,you have to wonder how many of his regular playmates were going full out in some of those contests.?
