National Police Gazette The National Police Gazette, often simply referred to as the Police Gazette, was an American newspaper founded in 1845 by two journalists, Enoch E. Camp and George Wilkes. The editor and proprietor from 1877 until his death in 1922 was Richard Kyle Fox, an immigrant from Ireland, who turned the publication into something close to a national institution. With its focus on lurid crime, sleaze, vice, and bimbos, it was a periodical commonly found in the nation's pool rooms, barber shops, and taverns. Its sexy illustrations and advertisements sometimes challenged the obscenity laws of the day. What really made the Police Gazette popular was its coverage of sports. No other newspaper in the United States covered sports to its extent--especially prize fighting. Published on pink paper, its coverage of major boxing events was so beloved by the public that often 300,000 issues were printed to satisfy demand following an important bout. The usual run was about 150,000 copies--easily enough to make it a gold mine for Fox. Fox started the tradition of awarding championship belts to boxers. Fox died in 1922 and the Great Depression hurt circulation considerably the following decade. Neverthelees the Police Gazette survived as a periodical in various forms until 1977.

Andrew Golota The Foul Pole This is painful to watch. In 1996 Polish heavyweight boxer Andrew Golota was on his way to the big time. He was convincingly beating former champ Riddick Bowe when he repeatedly hit Bowe with low blows and was diqualified. A few months later the two met in a rematch. The same thing couldn't happen again, could it? Hey, that's why boxing writers dubbed Golota 'The Foul Pole!'

Jack Johnson World Heavyweight Champion The first black boxer to hold the world heavyweight title was Jack Johnson of Galveston, Texas. Johnson held the crown from 1908 through 1915. A superb defensive fighter, he would sometimes go through several rounds without his opponent landing a meaningful punch. When he beat Canada's Tommy Burns for the title in Australia in 1908, correspondent Jack London wrote, 'Not one second of any round could legitimately be scored for Burns.' Johnson so outclassed his opposition that his title reign inspired the Great White Hope movement in America to find someone with the proper pigmentation to beat him. Nat Fleischer, who edited The Ring magazine from 1922 through 1972, rated Johnson as the greatest heavyweight ever.

Sugar Ray Leonard One of my all-time favorite boxers, Sugar Ray Leonard, is featured on the cover of a 1979 issue of The Ring magazine. The late 1970s and early 1980s saw a renaissance in the sweet science. Leonard's skill and popularity were major reasons.

Danny Lopez SI Cover 1979 One of my favorite boxers, exciting world featherweight champion Danny (Little Red) Lopez, was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated on February 12, 1979--29 years ago today. In today's repressive, politically correct society, there's no way SI would run that photo and use that caption. It generated no complaints in 1979, though.

Duane Bobick Great White Hope Flop Anyone else remember heavyweight boxer Duane Bobick? He was a bronze medallist at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

With 42 million people watching, disaster...
