PASCUAL PÉREZ — (“Pascualito”, “El león mendocino”, The Lion of Mendoza) Born in May 4, 1926, in Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina, was Olympic Champion in London, 1948; as amateur he won nearly 20 titles, the most in Argentinean history (besides the Olympic title, he won five Argentinean and three Latin American championships). As a pro, he was Argentinean champion from 1953 to 1957, and undisputed world flyweight Champion 1954-1960, as well as the unified champion of his weight with most consecutive title defenses, mainly in the country of his challengers. Many noteworthy critics and historians considered him the best flyweight of all time. From the opening of his pro career, battling with bantamweights and featherweights, he won his first 18 bouts by K.O., and was unbeaten for 52 fights, with 51 victories, 1 draw and 37 K.O. Like a good number one, he was the first Argentinean Olympic and World Champion, the first protagonist (and winner) of the first world title fight in different nations, as Argentina (1956), Uruguay (1956), or Venezuela (1958), against Ramón Arias (in the first world championship battle between two South Americans). Little of weight and stature, Pascual never surpassed 48 kg (106 lbs), giving, nearly always, advantage of weight and physical height to his rivals, but he was the most complete, the most perfect Argentine boxer; he wasn’t a mixture or a synthesis between a “stylist” or a “puncher”: he was the addition of both characteristics; he is, along with Eder Jofre and Roberto Durán, perhaps, one of the three best Latin American fighters. He had the capacity and precision of attack of Monzón, and he could also simultaneously defend as an expert like Locche, and, when his oppenent was most difficult, he was at his most extraordinary. Along his exceptional career, he faced and defeated the best of all in his time: the world champion Yoshio Shirai (on points and by K.O. 5), Danny Kid (Points 10), Leo Espinosa (Points 15), Oscar Suárez (TKO 11), the British Empire champion Dai Dower (KO 1), the European champion Young Martín (KO 3), Ramón Arias (Points 15), Dommy Ursúa (Points 15), Kenji Yonekura (Points in 10 and in 15) and took revenge on the first man to beat him, Sadao Yaoita (winning by K.O.), until he lost his title to Pone Kingpetch. Only once in his career, he was knocked out, by Efrén Torres, “Alacrán” (Scorpion), in 1963; in the following year, after a rout against Eugenio Hurtado, he retired. In total between 1952-64, he fought 93 bouts, won 85 (KO’s: 59), drew 1 and lost only 7.

Five most important fights:

W PTS 15   Yoshio Shirai (November 26, 1954)

W KO 1   Dai Dower (March 30, 1957)

W KO 3   Young Martín (December 7, 1957)

W PTS 15   Ramón Arias (April 19, 1958)

W KO 13   Sadao Yaoita (November 5, 1959)


NICOLINO LOCCHE — (“Intocable”, Untouchable) Born September 2, 1939, in Mendoza, Argentina. Was lightweight champion of Argentina (1961-64; 1965-66) and South America (1963-66); junior welterweight champion of Argentina (1966-68), South America (1966-68) and world champion (after 1968). From 1958 to 1964, made 55 bouts without a loss (winning 45 and drawing 10), and between 1964 to 1972, when lost his title to Alfonso Frazer, he was unbeaten in 57 fights (won 54 and drew 3); through 1973 to 1976, he won his last seven fights. He faced the best men of his weight in their primes; among his most important wins are Joe Brown (1963), Sandro Lopopolo (1966), Eddie Perkins (1967), Paul Fujii (1968), Carlos Hernández (1969), Antonio Cervantes (1971) and Pedro Adigue (1973); he also drew with Ismael Laguna (1965) and Carlos Ortíz (1966), all world champions; Laguna, Ortíz and Lopopolo was  holders of the belt in non-title bouts, and against of Fujii he obtained the championship. He also scored notable victories over Jaime Giné, Vicente Derado, Eulogio Caballero, Manuel Álvarez, Tony Padrón, Sebastiao Nascimento, Raúl Villalba, Roberto Palavecino, Abel Laudonio, Hugo Rambaldi, Everaldo Costa Azevedo, L.C. Morgan (who previously beat José Nápoles), Abel Cachazú, Al Urbina, Juan Salinas, Juan Aranda, Joao Henrique, Adolph Pruitt, Benny Huertas and Jimmy Heair (!!!) When Locche stopped Paul Fujii, all the enthusiasts of the world could see him in action and were dazzled with his impeccable defense style, his perfect jab, his precise avoids, his exceptional reflex and velocity, and many compared him, without doubt, to Benny Leonard... Only the lack of a power punch prevented him from being considered the most complete Argentinian fighter, although by studying his record, it is very easy to see in Locche an extraordinary boxer. Total bouts (1958-1976): 136, win 118 (KO’s: 14), lost 4, drew 14.

Five most important fights:

D PTS 10   Ismael Laguna (July 17, 1965)*

D PTS 10   Carlos Ortíz (April 7, 1966)*

W PTS 10   Sandro Lopopolo (September 10, 1966)*

W TKO 10   Paul Fujii (December 12, 1968)

W PTS 15   Antonio Cervantes (December 12, 1971)

* Non title bout with a world champion


CARLOS MONZÓNBorn on August 7, 1942, in Santa Fe, Argentina. Middleweight champion of Argentina (1966-70), South America (1967-70) and world champion (1970-77). Like Pascual Pérez among the flyweights, he is too considered, among the bests middleweights of all time, one of the “Great Five” (with Stanley Ketchel, Harry Greb, Mickey Walker, and Ray Sugar Robinson). Tall, thin, cool, imperturbable, attacking with exact and mighty blows, he could win with only one impact of his right hand or by slowly demolishing his opponents. His style didn’t attract as much attention as his struggles did, so his nearly perfect career offers a curiosity: he vanquished rivals who previously were considered better than him, so his ascent was one surprise after another. The first time he truly attracted attention was when, opposite the unbeaten Celedonio Lima, who was considered large favorite, Monzón got an unforeseen victory with only one blow of his dread right hand (KO 5); another triumph against all foresight, out of any calculation, was when he won very controversially to Jorge Fernández and snatched the Argentinean middleweight title (Points 12); the result was more convincing and more surprising when Carlos won a rematch (Points, 12); with this achievement, he acceded to international consideration. Proceeding victories, among others, over Antonio Aguilar (KO 9 and KO 6), Doug Huntley (KO 4), Charlie Austin and Johnny Brooks (both on points), Harold Richardson (KO 3), Tom Bethea and Eddie Pace (both on points in 10), took him to confront the extraordinary and more or less invincible Italian idol Nino Benvenutti, Olympic champion and triple world champion, who, as an amateur and professional, surpassed 200 consecutive triumphs, and  incredibly, Monzón won spectacularly to prove he was much better than the European (KO 12); in the return bout, with marvelous facility, Carlos repeated his triumph (TKO 3). Already world champion, he retained his title 14 times, beating the best and most powerful challengers. During his seven year reign, until he retired,  men dropped under his fists like Emile Griffith (TKO 14 and on points 15), Denny Moyer (TKO 5), Jean-Claude Bouttier (TKO 13 and on points 15), Tom Bogs (TKO 5), Tony Mundine (KO 7), Tony Licata (KO 10), Rodrigo Valdez (twice on points 15) and, contrary to many reports, José Nápoles (TKO 7), the fabulous world welterweight champion. From 1964 until his retirement, he stayed unbeaten through 82 bouts (winning 73, of this, 57 by K.O., and drawing 9). Total fights (1963-1977): 102, win 89, (KO’s: 61), lost 3, drew 9 and had 1  NC.

Five most important fights:

W PTS 12   Jorge Fernández (September 3, 1966)

W KO 12   Nino Benvenutti (November 7, 1970)

W TKO 14   Emile Griffith (September 25, 1971)

W TKO 7   José Nápoles (February 9, 1974)

W PTS 15   Rodrigo Valdés (July 30, 1977)


LUIS FIRPO — (“Toro salvaje”, Savage bull) Born in Junín, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on October 21, 1895. Heavyweight champion of Argentina (1923-28) and South America (1920-24). Endowed with an extraordinary power punch and indomitable courage, he was without rivals of his level in all South America, therefore in the start of the ‘20s he went to the United States, where he immediately dazzled with his exceptional qualities in fighting, in addition to his gigantic aspect (6’2 ½” or 1.90m., and 220 lbs. or 100kg.), ideal for a heavyweight. A continuous series of victories, among others versus Joe McCann (KO 5), Jack Herman (KO 4), Bill Brennan (KO 12), the former world champion Jess Willard (KO 8), Homer Smith (on points) and Charles Weinert (KO 2), took Luis to a struggle for the world title against the mythical Jack Dempsey; this fight, epic in the history of boxing, was brief as well intense, and in the course of two rounds saw both men on the canvas, and, before being knocked out, Firpo, with a formidable right blow, knocked Dempsey of the ring for 19 seconds… A famous painting by George Bellows of this battle hangs in the Museum of Modern Art of New York. After this grandiose bout, Firpo continued his career, but not with the previous enthusiasm, and he won over European champion Erminio Spalla (KO in 14 and on points) and fought to a No Contest with the legendary Harry Wills over 12 rounds. Between 1917 and 1936, fought in total 40 times, win 32 (KO’s: 28), lost 4, and had 4 No Contests.

Five most important fights:

W KO 12   Bill Brennan (March 12, 1923)

W KO 8   Jess Willard (July 12, 1923)

W KO 2   Charley Weinert (August 13, 1923)

L KO 2   Jack Dempsey (September 14, 1923)

W KO 14   Erminio Spalla (March 7, 1924)


JUSTO SUÁREZ — (“Torito”, Little bull) Born on January 9, 1909, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lightweight champion of Argentina (1930-32). As amateur (1924-28), was unbeaten in 48 fights, winning 43 (KO’s: 15), drawing in 3 and with 2 NC. Among the Argentinean boxing idols, he was the most dear; his charm, chivalry and modesty rapidly allured and conquered the public as much as his outstanding athletic aptitudes. He was a tireless fighter, a whirlwind in the ring, with a style very similar to Harry Greb. His career was meteoric, and he quickly ascended to the top, defeating one after another all the rivals who opposed him with his accurate hitting and his unsurpassed velocity and vitality, always throwing blows like lightning and moving with incomparable nimbleness. From the beginning, he won over famous people; among the most important, the European champion Enrico Venturi (TKO 6), the former South American champion Julio César Fernández (Points 12), Luis Rayo, one of the greatest Argentinian fighters, who had the European and Spanish titles for a short time (Points in 12), the North American Lou Palusso (KO 2), the Englishman Fred Webster (KO 1), the Spanish Hilario Martínez (TKO 5), the North American Babe Herman, who formerly disputed the world featherweight title (KO 1), the extraordinary Argentinian Julio Mocoroa (Points in 12), the dreaded Chilean and South American champion Luis Vicentini (Points in 12); after these astonishing victories, he went to the United States, where he promptly received admiration and, among the most conspicuous, he beat the excellent Bruce Flowers — who had surpassed Jimmy Goodrich, Billy Petrolle, Estanislao Loayza and Jack Bernstein — knocking out him for the first time in frantic combat — (TKO 6), Ray Miller — who beat Jimmy McLarnin and Sid Terris— (Points 10)  and Louis “Kid” Kaplan, one of the best world featherweight champions (Points 10). With these towering triumphs, he turned to Argentina, and defeated Chilean Estanislao Loayza (KO 3) and the South American champion Juan Carlos Casalá (KO 3); and all this in only two years! But behind these spectacular victories, he began to show the firsts symptoms of the tuberculosis that would defeat him, so, when he returned to the United States, he confronted Billy Petrolle and lost to the “Fargo Express” by KO in 9, in New York, June 25, 1931; this, his first loss, accelerated his physical degradation and moved him away from his best level: only five fights after and he retired. As a professional, he fought from 1928 to 1935; total: 29, win 24 (KO’s 14), lost 2, drew 1 and had 2 NC.

Five most important fights:

W PTS 12   Luis Rayo (March 23, 1929)

W KO 1   Babe Herman (March 1, 1930)

W PTS 12   Julio Mocoroa (March 27, 1930)

W KO 6   Bruce Flowers (August 18, 1930)

W PTS 10   Louis (Kid) Kaplan (October 17, 1930)


HORACIO ACCAVALLO — (“Roquiño”, Little Rocky) Born in October 14, 1934, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Flyweight champion of Argentina (1961-66), South America (1961-66) and world champion (1966-68, WBA version). His style was difficult, reflexive rather than potent; he studied his rivals in the early rounds, discovered their weak points, and attacked with astonishing efficacy.  Unbeaten in his first 31 fights, lost to Salvatore Burruni, in Italy (1959), though Accavallo beat Burruni twice, before (1958) and after (1965) this defeat, the second time when the Italian was world champion. Between 1959 and 1967, went 49 fights without a lost (winning 48 and drawing 1). Among his most conspicuous wins were Giacomo Spano (Points 10), Angelo Rampin (Points 8), Salvatore Manca (Points 10), Ratón Osuna (Points 8), Carlos Rodríguez (Points 12, twice), the South American champion Júpiter Mansilla (several times, always on points), Carlos Miranda (Points 10), the top, intricate Mexican Jesús Hernández (Points 10 and TKO 9), Demetrio Carabajal (Points 10, TKO 11 and TKO 9), the Venezuelan idol Ramón Arias (Points 10), Eugenio Hurtado (Points 10) and the subsequent South American champion Nelson Alarcón (Points 12). In 1966 he won the WBA vacant title from Katsuyoshi Takayama; and retained it against the bests, Hiroyuki Ebihara (who regained it after a brief reign) and Efrén “Alacrán” Torres who previously was defeated by him in championship bouts. His career extended from 1956 to 1968, with a total of 84 fights, winning 76 (KO’s: 37), losing only 2 and drawing 6. 

Five most important fights:

W TKO 9   Jesús (Chucho) Hernández (July 21, 1962)

W PTS 10   Salvatore Burruni (August 7, 1965)*

W PTS 15   Katsuyoshi Takayama (March 1, 1966)

W PTS 15   Efrén (Alacrán) Torres (December 10, 1966)

W PTS 15   Hiroyuki Ebihara (August 12, 1968)

*: Non title bout with a world champion


JULIO MOCOROA — (“Bulldog”) Born on October 25, 1905, in La Plata, Argentina. Featherweight Champion of Argentina (1926). He studied odontology and left his university career for boxing, in which he was particularly gifted, distinguished by the peculiar qualities of a defensive master, nearly impervious, and cold, calculated, precise blows. He won the Argentinean featherweight title from Olivio Gulle in a brief fight (KO 1). He was the antithesis of Justo Suárez in boxing, and the sensational struggle between both pugilists in 1930 for the vacant Argentinian lightweight title offered the matchless attraction of fierceness versus ability, offense versus defense, the personal charm of Justo versus the gravity of Mocoroa -- an event that gathered 66,000 people. Among his most important bouts are his victories over the European bantamweight and featherweight champion Domenico Bernasconi (Points 12, twice), the European champion Antonio Ruíz (Points 12), the South American champion Carlos Uzabeaga (Points 12), his draw with the extraordinary European champion, the Belgian Henri Scillie, double winner of Panamá Al Brown (Draw in 12) and triumphs over the dangerous Chilean Luis Vicentini (Points 12), Tiger Smith (KO 5) and Umberto Franceschini (KO 6). Among 1926 and 1931, he fought 23 battles, won 18 (KO’s: 6), lost 2 and  drew 3.

Five most important fights:

W PTS 12   Domenico Bernasconi (April 23, 1926)

W PTS 12   Antonio Ruíz (December 30, 1926)

D PTS 12   Henri Scillie (May 3, 1927)

W PTS 12   Luis Vicentini (October 13, 1928)

L PTS 12   Justo Suárez (March 27, 1930)


JORGE FERNÁNDEZBorn on September 28, 1935, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a welterweight, he was number one challenger for the world title (1962), as a junior middleweight, Argentinean champion (1966-67); as a middleweight, champion of Argentina (1964-66) and South America (1966-67). One of the most complete Argentinian boxers, with all the resources of the stylist and the power of the most precise and decisive kayoer. In the beginnings of his extended professional career (1953-73), he was unbeaten in 46 fights, with 45 triumphs (30 by KO), until his first defeat, facing the extraordinary puncher Martiniano Pereyra (Points 15), and taking revenge less than a year after. With other important victories against Alfonso Moreno (KO 1), Adalberto Ochoa (KO 4) and Joe Miceli (TKO 7), in 1960 he went to the United States, where he obtained brilliant triumphs over difficult top rivals like Teddy Wright, Isaac Logart, Charley Scott and Denny Moyer (twice). Like with Luis Manuel Rodríguez, Emile Griffith had serious difficulties in his bouts with Jorge, winning in very controversial decisions in the first two fights. In the third, which was for the world welterweight title of Griffith on December 1962, in Las Vegas, Fernández was doing very well on the cards when Emile commited a severe infraction, connecting  with a very potent low hit, and when Fernández waited for a technical victory by foul, the referee declared him the loser by TKO: in Nevada, rules didn’t exist for disqualification. Returned to his country, won roundly over fighters like Manuel Álvarez (by KO in 6; Álvarez was winner of Curtis Cokes, in 1962, and with victories over L. C. Morgan, Vicente Derado, Al Urbina and a draw with Nicolino Locche), the European champion Fortunato Manca (Points 10), Billy Collins (Points 10), the Argentinian champion Héctor Mora (Points 10 and TKO 8), the South American champion Fernando Barreto (TKO 6 and KO 7); his fans and rivals considered him invincible; and his first defeat against Monzón was regarded as an error by the judges and an injustice. The second defeat before Monzón was less controversial than the first, demoralized Jorge, who resolved to retire, though he returned to the ring, fighting in Europe, where he crowned his brilliant career by obtaining the Spanish middleweight championship with a brief victory over Pablo Sánchez (TKO 2, in Zaragoza, in 1973). In total, between 1953 and 1973, Jorge Fernández fought 126 times as professional, won 113 (KO’s: 80), drew 3 and lost only 10.

Five most important fights:

W PTS 10   Martiniano Pereyra (July 12, 1958)

W TKO 7   Joe Miceli (July 25, 1959)

W PTS 10   Denny Moyer (April 18, 1961)

L TKO 9   Emile Griffith (December 8, 1962)

L PTS 12   Carlos Monzón (September 3, 1966)    


JOSÉ CARATTOLIBorn in La Plata, Argentina, on September 30, 1906. Argentinean champion as a light heavyweight (1930-34) and heavyweight (1932-34). Solid, enthusiastic, his left hand impacts were perhaps the most powerful in Argentinean boxing history. After brilliant wins over rivals of importance like Vicente Olivieri (KO 6) and Isidoro Gastañaga (TKO 6), he was challenged for his Argentinian light heavyweight title by the Argentinean middleweight champion Pedro Mancieri, an imposing puncher, and Carattoli, in an unforgetable fight, shook Mancieri with his famous left and left him unconscious for several minutes (KO 3); other outstanding victories of José were against the Olympic light heavyweight champion of 1928, Víctor Avendaño (KO 2), the South American champion Humberto Quiñones (KO 2), Domenico Ceccarelli (Points 12), Alex Thorne (KO 3), Thomas Miller (KO 2), Alberto Icochea (Points 10), Alejandro Trías (KO 2), Luis Balladores (KO 2), Erwin Klausner (KO 5), Jack Risaneck (TKO 2), Esteban Senestraro (Points 12) and Guillermo Silva (KO 3), but the time he most  showed his best qualities was when confronted by Tommy Loughran, a perfect stylist and great light heavyweight world champion, who first defeated him on points and afterwards drew. Overall in his career, between 1928 and 1936, he fought 42 times, won 31 (KO’s: 21), lost 5, drew 5 and had 1 NC.

Five most important fights:

W KO 6   Vicente Olivieri (April 22, 1930)

W TKO 6   Isidoro Gastañaga (1931)

W KO 3   Pedro Mancieri (November 11, 1933)

W PTS 12   Tommy Loughran (October 6, 1934)

D PTS 12   Tommy Loughran (February 21, 1935)


EDUARDO LAUSSE – (“K.O.”, “Zurdo”, Left-handed) Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 8, 1927. Middleweight champion of Argentina (1953-56) and South America (1956). Characterized by his great dynamism and the velocity of his fists, his stubbornness and invincible courage, as well as a mighty left -- rapid and unfailing like the famous hand of the legendary Carattoli -- he realized a memorable campaign in his country and in the United States, and on account of the fact that he was so dangerous, he was unable to fight for a world championship, as he met more obstacles in the bureaucracy than in the ring. He became demoralized, and after every fight the conditions to the top became more steep, and he retired. Among his most important triumphs are Kid Cachetada (twice on points), Rafael Miranda (KO 6 and KO 1), the Peruvian champion Antonio Frontado (KO 7), Mario Díaz (KO 4), Jimmy Beau (KO 2 and KO 1), the Chilean champion Humberto Loayza (twice by KO in 3), Jesse Turner (Points 10), Chico Varona (KO 7), Joe Rindone (KO 2), the Brazilian champion Nelson de Andrade (KO 9), Gil Edwards (KO 5), George Small (KO 4), the exceptional Ralph “Tiger” Jones (Points 10 in a bloody and dramatic combat), the former world champion Kid Gavilán (Points 12); Gene Fullmer, who shortly afterward was world champion (Points 10), and the British champion Johnny Sullivan (TKO 5), Andrés Selpa (Points 10) and Víctor Zalazar (KO 8). His career, from 1947 to 1960, total bouts: 91, won: 78 (KO’s: 65; of them, 18 in the first round), lost: 10, drew: 3. Between 1952-54 he scored 18 consecutive wins by K.O.

Five most important fights:

W KO 4   Mario Díaz (July 11, 1953)

W PTS 10   Ralph (Tiger) Jones (May 13, 1955)

W PTS 12   Kid Gavilán (September 3, 1955)

W PTS 10   Gene Fullmer (November 25, 1955)

W TKO 5   Johnny Sullivan (December 7, 1955)
