Marcel Cerdan was a French hero and is considered by many experts to be among the very best Middleweights who ever lived. Legendary boxing writer Bert Sugar ranked the “Casablanca Clouter” #23 on his top 100 pound for pound all-time boxers list, ahead of such all-time greats as Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Jake LaMotta.
Cerdan was born on July 22, 1916 in Sidi Bel Abbes, Algeria, which was then under French control. The “Casablanca Clouter” turned professional on November 10, 1934 winning a 6 round decision over Marcel Bucchianeri in Meknes, Morocco. The stocky Cerdan, standing at 5’8’’, was a dangerous puncher with solid boxing skills. He won his first 45 professional fights and captured the French Welterweight title with a 12 round decision over Omar Koidri in February 1938. The “Casablanca Clouter” lost for the first time in his career by disqualification to Harry Craster in January 1939. He responded by reeling off 23 consecutive victories and winning the European Welterweight title with a 6th round stoppage of Koidri in May 1941.
Undefeated heavyweight Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington, (16-0, 11 KOs) battles Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (22-1, 16 KOs) in the 10-round main event on the Tuesday, October 13 edition of PBC Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays on FS1 and Fox Deportes from the Little Creek Resort Casino in Shelton, Washington. Also featured on the card are 2012 United States Olympian and undefeated heavyweight Michael Hunter, (9-0, 6KOs) and light heavyweight knockout artist Ahmed Elbiali, (12-0, 11KOs) in separate bouts.
After going 9-7 in week 1, I am looking to try and figure out just exactly what was a fluke or not.

“Keep your guard up! You’re in a real fight now!” – The Cornerman
Over the din of the crowd the cornerman shouts advice to his boxer on the stool in front of him after another punishing round. He works on his charge feverishly trying to restore his energies and remind him of the gameplan. But the opponent in the opposite corner is no ordinary fighter. The bell rings for the next round and the cornerman’s fighter stands up. He knows he’s fighting on borrowed time. He doesn’t have much left to give. The maelstrom continues. Everything goes dark. Silence inside. Bedlam outside. He didn’t see the shot that put him down and out.
As I think about the future of boxing a few names come to mind. This article will showcase my top 5 rising stars. Stars who I feel are ready to shine in 2016. These 5 in my opinion can rise to the top of their respective divisions by the end of next year.
#5. Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramírez, 32-0, 24 KO’s. He is a 24 year old 6’2” Southpaw, Super Middleweight, from Sinaloa Mexico who is ranked #2 by the WBO, #2 by the WBA, #3 by the WBC, and #3 by the IBF at 168 pounds. Zurdo is the current NABF super middleweight champion, with three successful defenses. The WBO International super middleweight champion, with two successful defenses and the Former NABO super middleweight champion and former WBC Youth
middleweight champion, with seven successful defenses.
