Johnny Dundee (Giuseppe Carrara) was one of boxing’s most enduring figures. The Sicilian-born New Yorker was a fine ring craftsman who possessed agility, plenty of fighting heart and fast reflexes that were the cornerstones of his remarkable longevity. He engaged in a phenomenal 340 recorded bouts. He met the best featherweights and lightweights including the legendary Benny Leonard eight times in no-decision encounters with little to choose between them. When already past his prime, he won the world featherweight title as well as twice capturing the junior-lightweight title. He met them all including thirteen world champions.
