The former American boxer achieved 27 knockouts in his career, but his forte was the technical style, with which he tied up his opponents and avoided being hit, a style not very loved by his critics but whom he silenced with his results. He has also been the pioneer of turning boxing into a business and hence his nickname “Money”.
It could be known that Money held a party at a skating rink located in Londonjust two days after his exhibition fight against Aaron Chalmers.
