Campbell-Hyland 1913 Boxing Photo Normally I don't approve of colorizing black-and-white photos, but this one shows why sometimes it makes a difference. The final bell has just ended a gory May 3, 1913 boxing match in Steveston, British Columbia between welterweights Ray Campbell and Dick Hyland. Each fighter has his armed raised in victory by his respective manager after 15 rounds of what must have been intense action. (Campbell, the fighter on the left, won the decision.) I bet nobody in the crowd was clamoring for a refund.

Spectacular Knockout Cardona-Avelar 1982 This may be the most devastating knockout ever suffered by a boxing champion defending his title. On March 20, 1982 Mexico's Antonio Avelar was making the second defense of his WBC world flyweight championship. His opponent was Colombia's Prudencio Cardona. Cardona, age 30, had competed in the 1972 Olympics and was thought to be past his prime. Nevertheless, Cardona delivered a knockout for the ages in the very first round to win the crown. This is Spanish commentary of the short fight. Skip to about 2:10 to get to the surprising and sudden finish.

Benny Leonard - Sad Last Fight Throughout boxing history many great champions have either lingered too long or have made ill-advised comebacks only to suffer a bad defeat at the hands of a younger, fitter man. Benny Leonard, one of the greatest lightweights of all time, falls into this category. He reigned as world lightweight champion from 1917 to 1925 when he retired from the ring at age 28 at his mother's insistence. A master boxer, the hugely popular Leonard was almost unbeatable in his prime. Leonard lost all his savings when the stock market crashed in 1929 and was forced to make a comeback to earn a living. Starting in October 1931 Leonard won 19 fights and had one draw versus mostly substandard opposition. On October 7, 1932 he was paired against rising welterweight star Jimmy McLarnin--a terrific boxer-puncher who was 10 years younger than the 36-year-old Leonard. This condensed version of the fight at Madison Square Garden shows McLarnin administering a sound beating on the gallant old champ before referee Arthur Donovan wisely steps in to halt the contest in the sixth round. McLarnin would win the world welterweight title within a year. Leonard never fought again, but he stayed involved in boxing as a very capable referee. Leonard died of a heart attack while refereeing a bout in 1947. He was just 11 days past his 51st birthday.

Olympic Boxing Champ Howard Davis Passes It has been announced that Howard Davis Jr., a gold medalist on the vastly talented 1976 American Olympic boxing team, passed away at age 59 from inoperable lung cancer on December 30, 2015. In a TV news interview conducted about two weeks before his death late, Davis claimed he had never used tobacco nor alcohol throughout his entire life. Davis was one of five American gold medalists who dominated the Montreal Olympic boxing tournament. Davis won the Val Barker Award as the most outstanding boxer in those Games. This was quite a feat considering the other American gold medalists were Sugar Ray Leonard, Leo Randolph, Michael Spinks, and Leon Spinks. Davis was a sentimental favorite as his mother died from a heart attack just a week before the Olympics began. Davis won two of his five Olympic bouts in the lightweight division by knockout, but as a professional he seldom displayed punching power, recording only 14 knockouts in 43 fights. Davis' lack of a big punch and generally cautious approach to his bouts made him far less marketable to TV audiences than Ray Leonard or Michael Spinks. Nevertheless, three times Davis fought for pro world titles and three times he lost. His last title fight loss--a first-round defeat to Buddy McGirt in 1988--sent Davis into retirement. Six years later Davis won three comeback fights before suffering a bad knockout defeat as a middleweight which ended his boxing career. His overall pro record was 36-6-1. The other four American Olympic champs from 1976--plus heavyweight bronze medalist John Tate--won at least some version of a world title at the professional level.

Shirley Temple - Tra La La La From the 1940 comedy-drama Young People, Shirley Temple performs the musical dance number Tra La La La with co-stars Jack Oakie and Charlotte Greenwood. The plot has the film's three stars playing a vaudeville family who choose to retire from the stage and move to a rural New England community to live a normal life. However, their presence is resented by the stodgy locals who dislike showbiz folks--and anything else that differs from their ways. This is the last sequence of the film. It also turned out to be the swansong of 12-year-old Shirley's career with Twentieth Century Fox--the studio she had single-handedly saved from bankruptcy. Her contract was not renewed as her box-office appeal had diminished markedly as Shirley approached her teenage years. Shirley's two co-stars in this movie both died within a month of each other in the late 1970s.

The Wicked Dreams of Paula Schultz Who remembers this Cold War-era movie? Four members of the TV sitcom Hogan's Heroes (Bob Crane, John Banner, Leon Askin, and Werner Klemperer) starred alongside the comely Elke Sommer in The Wicked Dreams of Paula Schultz. The plot has Sommer playing the title character. She's an East German athlete who, while training for the 1968 Olympics, decides to pole vault over the Berlin Wall to freedom in the West. Crane plays an amoral American businessman with black market connections in East Germany who is willing to sell Schultz to either East or West Germany. Banner, Askin and Klemperer all play bumbling East German agents who come to the obvious conclusion that retrieving the sexy pole vaulter would be good for communist propaganda. The film was both a box office and critical disaster. Movie critic Leonard Maltin describes it as 'a laughless dud.'
