Biography | show moreshow less
Jimmy McLarnin (1907-2004) was twice the world welterweight champion (1933-1935). In 1966 Ring magazine ranked him the fifth greatest welterweight of all time, and he is enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. McLarnin lost his welterweight crown to Ross, regained it, and then lost again, each bout decided by a narrow decision. Although this photo is uncaptioned, the boxers appear to be awaiting a decision. McLarnin, nicknamed "the Baby-Faced Assassin", retired at the top of his game in 1936, after whipping top-ranked boxers Tony Canzoneri and Lou Ambers. Unlike many prize fighters, he saved and invested his winnings and retired comfortably, refusing requests to re-enter the ring but appearing in several films, including Joe Palooka (1946).
