    I never won a World Title;
    Although I'm not in the Hall of Fame, I beaten 5 All Time Greats;
    In total, I had 14 fights against HOF's and 9 fights against Champions of the World;
    I fought across the U.S.A. but most of my fights happened in my hometown or across the state of Pennsylvania;
    I fought from 1909 till 1924 and although I fought Legends in almost every year of my career from 1912 till 1923, there was one Great that I beat in 1914 when he was still at the peak of his fame;
    I didn't fought Harry Greb, true, but you can count by the fingers of one hand the great Middleweights of my time that I didn't faced;
    Amongst the fighters that I faced and beat, there's Larry Williams, Billy Kramer, Jackie Clark, Joe Borrell and Kid Locke;
    After my retirement, I trained a very talented Heavyweight from Portugal that unfortunately didn't achieved what he should based on his talent;
    I was born in the same year of the founding of the Japanese Company Kubota in Osaka, Japan;


    Who am I?

    ps: Looks like this is a tough one so I'll add another info.
    I fought Young Stribling, Jeff Smith and Tommy Sullivan, all with different outcomes;
