    Sounds like it was a Kickboxer or something that fought around that time.

    Nah, not a kickboxer, DJ.

    I'm Canadian if that helps.

    By that I meant me. Not the fighter I'm looking for.

    God I suck at this.

    The building is in the same city as was the Blue Horizon.
    The Hammer and the fighter I'm looking for fought in different sports at the same time, and I'm Canadian (I as in me)
    The bolded part could be a play on words

    Not a wrestler either, DJ. Think more Canadian with the Hammer part.

    I didn't know both Jack and Gerry were legitimate shooters, DJ. Interesting.

    Whilst still an amateur, I was the second unpaid boxer ever to appear on the cover of Ring Magazine.

    But I was despatched inside a round in my sole world title shot as a pro.

    Did he appear on the cover as an opponent to Tefilio Stevenson?

    If we're looking at the same issue, Seano, that looks like John Tate on the cover with Teo.

    I was just looking at Ring covers the other day and recalled Stevenson. Likely the same issue.

    Probably.

    I was thinking Marvis Frazier might be the guy Sweet was looking for, but I didn't see him on any Ring covers from his ammy days with a quick glance.

    Wait. Marvis was on the Ring cover for the Aug 1980 issue with his father, which would have been just before he turned pro.

    That's my guess.

    "The Hammer and I could sell the building out when we fought in it, although please bear in mind my trunks weren't designed in tribute to this former HW champion as he was no friend of mine."

    "I'm so bad at this. Get it?"

    "I didn't know both Jack and Gerry were legitimate shooters, DJ. Interesting."


    I was looking for Bennie Briscoe here who, like Max Baer (brother was Buddy), wore the Star of David on his trunks.

    This bit here was for Sweet's previous question.
