"Sleek black hair plastered over a well shaped head. A pair of dark brown eyes that sparkled intelligence. A kindly face in which were traced all the lines of friendliness. Soft-spoken, alert, glowing cheeks, an upright, slim body in perfect condition. A lightweight more brilliant than any other than the greatest of them all - the Immortal Joe Gans? That's what this youth was! His name was Benny Leonard. He combined the boxing engenuity of Young Griffo; the masterful technique of James J. Corbett; the clouts of Jack Dempsey; the alertness of Gene Tunney; the speed of Mike Gibbons. A combination that brought to him that which comes only to an all-around master of the pugilistic art - world renown, a title, weatth."
