Obscure shout, but Alabama Kid.

Really good fighter, though you may overlook him if you just stumbled across his Boxrec page.

Sort of the spiritual forerunner of your Livingstone Bramble and Emanuel Burton types a couple of generations on.

Freddie Dawson spent about two years or so here back in the '50's. He has to rate a mention.
