    Hey all, there is a plaque dedicated to Tommy Loughran in my neighborhood, I have pictures and will try to upload if there's any interest? I tried once but was doing something wrong as usual.

    Please do. I'm impressed that there is such a thing, considering the "Rocky" statue.

    Amazing. Philly Phantom was one of the most cerebral boxers to ever lace them.

    Well, it's related to the church it sits in front of, so that probably weighs in it's favor.

    Yessir! Love him, and cerebral is such an adequate term to describe Loughran's style, a 'thinking man's fighter'.

    Great trainers in the past have often said that the thinking man wins the fight! Thanks for the interest guys, I will try to get the pics up later today.

    I used to know, but I think they changed in in the ensuing years.
