Armand Emanuel was an attorney who claimed he made more money in the ring than in a courtroom. He was the former National A.A.U. Heavyweight Champion.

James P. Dawson of the New York Times gave this description of him following his victory over Mike McTigue on 7 June 1928: "Emanuel is a busy youngster, with a good left hand but a crude attack. He is a weak hitter and has a jaw which is none too strong in withstanding punishment."

A feature article on Emanuel, with many photos, appeared in the Ring Magazine: November 1998 issue. He was also featured on the cover of the September 1928 issue.
