Bob Fitzsimmons

Fitzsimmons in 1891 Robert James "Bob" Fitzsimmons (26 May 1863 – 22 October 1917) was a British professional boxer who was the sport's first three-division world champion. He also achieved fame for beating Gentleman Jim Corbett (the man who beat John L. Sullivan), and he is in ''The Guinness Book of World Records'' as the lightest heavyweight champion, weighing just 165 pounds when he won the title. Nicknamed Ruby Robert and The Freckled Wonder, he took pride in his lack of scars and appeared in the ring wearing heavy woollen underwear to conceal the disparity between his trunk and leg-development.

Considered one of the hardest punchers in boxing history, Fitzsimmons is ranked as No. 8 on ''The Ring'' magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time. Provided by Wikipedia
