    5 Boxers That Were Undefeated In Their Careers

    5 Boxers That Were Undefeated In Their Careers

    In this segment ladies and gentlemen, I am going to discuss "The Undefeated" throughout Boxing History. These boxers never LOST a fight. We use the definition of undefeated as never defeated or having lost an athletic contest. Now, the record on the surface can be somewhat deceiving.

Marquess of Queensberry Rules !

Frank Reading always impresses with an amazing knowledge of history. This time providing excellent insight on the art of fisticuffs. More than just a talented aficionado bobbing or weaving, Reading has genuine experience in the corner. An incredible memory, Frank's podcast reminds one of a quality puncher working the speed bag.

Preliminary review

I have heard dozens of commentaries from Mr Reading over the years. After years of wishful thinking his encyclopedic knowledge of boxing is making it’s way into our lives. Sit back and enjoy the boxing perspective from a historian, a trainer and a genuine fan of “The sweet science “ as he breaks down the theater of the unexpected with all its glory! ENJOY! !
