The 1920’s period saw some very interesting boxing personalities. And they used some very fascinating psychological tactics to win their fights, sometimes even before they got close to the ring.
Here’s a few examples:
Take the case of one ageing boxer who wasn’t as fit as he used to be. And how he used a doctor to terrify his opponent, to such an extent he had a far easier fight than he would have. Or another well known fighter who provoked one opponent to such a white hot rage that the guy was mentally beaten before the fight started.
Then there was the case of another famous boxer and how he used laughter to out-psych one opponent and this was the very boxer who was pre-warned about the boxer’s tricks!

And of course there was the famous Stanley Ketchell and how he used to talk to himself to before and during the contest – to win his fights. Which he generally did. These are just a few of the fascinating stories in a rare boxing book titled Great Fighters and Boxers which includes life and career details on 60 boxers. Including some very interesting stories not generally known to the public.
From Mike Donovan – Jack Dempsey – Eddie Nugent – Johnny Wilson – Jack Johnson – Bob Fitzsimmons – Willie Ritchie – George Dixon – Packy MacFarland – James J Corbett and many more.
