- "He was one of the most exciting fighters I have ever known. Even in defeat there was suspense throughout his fight because the fans knew he could turn a bout around with just one punch." Al Fain promoter

Charley Parham was credited for years with having scored 28 straight knockout victories. The Ring Record Book of the 1940s and 1950s lists the 28 straight knockouts on Parham's record. However, in recent years, there has been some doubt cast on this streak, and as of now, it remains unconfirmed.
