Gene Fullmer | Mormon Boxers

[sc:top_left_adsense300x250_1] A gutsy middleweight Mormon boxer, Gene Fullmer is well worthy of his status as a famous Mormon for his successful challenge of Sugar Ray Robinson’s title who, at the time, was considered unassailable. Though Sugar Ray was able to reclaim the title later, Fullmer had captured the imaginations of the public for his tough defence and his dogged persistence which tested the mettle of any boxer.

Later, he would take the NBA middleweight title and defend it successfully no less than seven times. His reign as champion is still remembered today, and he is regarded as one of the toughest famous Mormon boxers.
