Biography | show moreshow less
Primo Carnera (1906-1967) was World Heavyweight Boxing Champion from 1933-1934. The enormous Carnera, called "the Ambling Alp", stood 6'5", weighted 265 pounds, and had enormous hands. He won the title by knocking out Jack Sharkey in the sixth round in Madison Square Garden on June 29, 1933. He lost the title on June 14, 1934 in Madison Square Garden when he was knocked out by Max Baer in the 11th round, and was crushed by Joe Louis the next year. Abused and cheated first by mob-connected managers and then by Nazi occupiers of his Italian village during World War II, Carnera made an astonishing comeback as a professional wrestler (1946-1961), going 152-14-19 and being declared world champion. He became a US citizen in 1953. Carnera appeared in a few films, including The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933), in which he fought Max Baer, his real life ring opponent the next year.
