lol I saw that. He he had the most fights for a modern fighter. LOL I could whup him. P.S. Wickwar, by the look of his record, is a pretty good fighter. He would win 10 and lose 1. LOL he fought way too much though. He fought about 10 times in October of 1935

p.s. MY 400TH POST YAAAAY

I remember Harry Greb only having 299 fights. I remember that he died before his third hundredth bout.

Peter Buckley is a terrible fighter. he has 38-250. how does he keep fighting?

Tell me more about Abe the Newsboy, what was his real name?

His real name was Abe Hollandersky.

I have an autographed book called "The Life Story of Abe the Newsboy with U.S. Navy."

They claim that he had between 1,039 to 1,043 bouts. They also list nearly 500 of them.

The Ring Record Book listed Abe Hollandersky Number One for boxers with the most fights from the 1940s to the 1970s. (Many of his purported 1,000-plus victories were exhibitions fought on U.S. Navy ships. He also reputedly had hundreds of wrestling matches.)

Author of the autobiography (first self-published in 1930) entitled THE LIFE STORY OF ABE THE NEWSBOY (with the U.S. Navy) "HERO OF A THOUSAND FIGHTS." At page 384, he claimed to have fought more than 1,100 bouts. He said his last professional fight occurred 1927 in Honolulu, before Gov. Farrington, which he won.

Ive heard of an Australian Tent boxer that had over 2000 bouts, not registered pro bouts. There are other tent fighters with many bouts. If we talk about amateur bouts there are many Cubans with 200, 300, 400+ bouts. Also Milo the ancient greek was undefeated for 20years. Benny "the Jet Urquedez" was undefeated for 24yrs(kickboxing) There was an anchient roman gladiator that went undefeated for 20yrs he killed everone he fought and the crowds hated him because no one was a match so he was banished for being too good. There are pro Muay Thai boxers with hundreds of bouts
