“The Man of Steel” was an underrated journeyman from Gary, Indiana, who primarily fought out of Chicago during the 1930s. The hard nosed body puncher turned his career around in 1940 when twice beat NBA middleweight titleholder Al Hostak and scored a decision over fellow future hall of famer Fred Apostoli.
