Loaned His Title

        In the 1950s when i was hanging around Sullivans gym and the Grammercy gym there were fixed fights. Mob guys like Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo had taken over the sport ; one lightweight champion had loaned his title to others at least twice ; the welterweight division was a slag heap.
