Abe "Kid" Goodman
(Abraham Goodman)

BORN   August 19 1885; Odessa, Russia
HEIGHT 5-2
WEIGHT 130 lbs

 

Goodman was a scrappy fighter who tangled with many of the top men of his day; He was wiry and quick - and willing to "rumble"; He was not an overpowering hitter but struck well-placed blows

During his career, Abe defeated such men as Harry Lewis, Danny Dougherty, Chester Goodwin, Tommy Feltz, Patsy Haley, Joe Bernstein, Austin Rice and "Fighting" Dick Hyland
