BILLY SOOSE ; The Champion Time Forgot
Authors : Rusty
Rubin and Tom Donelson
Who is Billy Soose ? A lot of people may ask this
today's younger fans who probably had no idea.Two of
the best writers in the business, Rusty Rubin and Tom Donelson co-authored a
book that should enlighten the boxing fan as to how good Billy Soose really was.
I had heard of Billy Soose. He was one of the many middleweight
during that era along with Fred Apostoli, Ceferino Garcia, Marcel
Jeby, Lou Broulillard, Vince Dundee, Teddy Yarosz, Eddie Risko, Al
Solly Krieger, Ken Overlin, Freddie Steele and Gorilla Jones. I
that the tall, hard hitting Freddie Steele was the best of this
book made me re-think that position.
This book will show
why Billy Soose was such a unique boxer. He is
considered the best
collegiate boxer of all time. As his professional career
reached its zenith
he beat two reigning middleweight champions, Ken Overlin
and Tony Zale in
non-title matches. He would eventually meet Overlin again
and win a portion
of the title. A rematch with Tony Zale never materialized.
There is a
campaign to get Billy Soose inducted into the International
Boxing Hall Of
Fame. This well written book makes a strong case for
Mr.Soose. I know a lot
more about his amazing career since reading this
book. I highly recommend
it. It is one of those books that when you pick it
up, it is hard to put it
Juan Carlos Gomez Tests NEGATIVE
Heavyweight Contender Passes Independent Analysis
2005 – Former W.B.C. Cruiserweight Champion Juan Carlos Gomez received the
results of an independent drug test today. On December 22nd, 2005, in
a Burbank, California medical clinic, the thirty-two year old Gomez took the
independent drug test. The test’s results showed no cocaine traces in the system
Juan Carlos took matters into his own hands and scheduled the test
when a December 16th Associated Press report stated that he had
tested positive for cocaine use after an October 15th bout with
former W.B.C. Heavyweight Champion Oliver McCall in Germany and faced a possible
two-year suspension. Juan Carlos won the bout via a unanimous decision.
not afraid to be tested, as I have not used cocaine. The results from Germany
must have been an error. I look forward to straightening out my immigration
status here in the United States and traveling to Germany to look into this
matter,” said Gomez from his Santa Monica, California home.
“Most interesting to me is that no one has contacted me from the German boxing
commission or Universum, my promotional company, regarding these allegations
about cocaine use.”
Juan Carlos Gomez, nicknamed The Black Panther,
has a solid record of 40-1 (33 KOs) and is currently ranked as the number four
heavyweight in the World by the World Boxing Council.
