HE GOT KNOCKED DOWN, BUT HE GOT UP AGAIN, THE REAPERS GONNA KEEP HIM DOWN
Boxer Pete Rademacher has died. He won the 1956 Olympic boxing heavyweight gold, and swiftly became a challenger for Floyd Patterson’s world title. This was the first time a professional boxer made their professional debut in a world title match, and Rademacher briefly had Patterson on the floor, before Floyd recovered to post a KO victory. His 15-7 record afterwards kept from a repeat title match. After boxing, he became a salesman. He was a unique hit for YOUREOUT.
