Although this was the topic of another thread, I am making this a "Sticky" topic, so that newer visitors to the BoxRec Forum are alerted that BoxRec needs help in identifying some boxer and bout images we have in the database that we cannot currently identify. Who are these guys anyway?

There is an image with 2 boxers dated 1948 . I think the boxer on the left is Gus Lesnevich ,although I think the date of the picture may be wrong. I think it would be later than 1948 ,possibly into the mid 1950's .

Besides the images in the two Wiki categories linked in the original post, help us ID each of these members of the 1924 USA Olympic Boxing Team. Fidel LaBarba, bottom row center, is a given.

This link may help a bit.

I think the two guys in the right end kneeling are Ray Fee and Joe Salas. Jackie Fields is the 2nd guy kneeling from the left, I think. The guy standing on the far left is George Mulholland. I don't recognize any of the other guys at this time.

This photo will have been taken sometime between 1966 and 1968, my late father Ernie Field is on the left, but does anyone know who the gentlemen on the right is? My father was about 5-foot 11-inches, which means the gentlemen on the right is about 5-foot 7-inches, so I don't believe he was one of my father's opponents, and checking the the other bouts on the same bills as my father, I don't believe they fought on the same bill either. Judging by the expression of admiration on my father's face, I assume the gentlemen on the right is notable, a world champion?

Thank you for your response, I believe Charles "Little Apache" Ledoux was earlier than 1966-68, but it's interesting that you should mention a French boxer, as I've been trying to ascertain his country of origin. Looking at his facial features, I'm wondering if he might be French, but of Moroccan, Algerian, or Tunisian heritage?

I watched your grandfather fight Dwight Hawkins in 1957. The fight ended up a six round draw.
