    Here you go...he often fought at 175 and sometimes Hvy as the middles would avoid him. Like Baer, wouldn't hit with full power because of the damage he do to his hands or opponent.

    In 1940, he was brought Down Under to fight the huge punching Ron Richards (MW, LHW & HW Australian champ) - a bloke who punched hard enough to make one poor spar-mate blind, permanently in one eye and partially in another. Richards, a huge right hand puncher, was smart enough not to play around and jumped on Actis, stopping him in one. Actis was scheduled to have a multi-fight touring series in Australia (like Archie Moore did) but the stoppage shot his confidence and he was allowed to go home....and people say Haglar-Mugabi or Tiger-Carter was the hardest punching middle weight fight ever. Pfft.

    I don’t know much about Willard but I remember the jaw bone went inside his opponent’s skull, from a punch.

    He was set for failure from the very beginning then.
