The British Light-Heavyweight amateur champion in 1931, Jack Peterson turned professional that year and fought until 1937. In 38 professional bouts he compiled a record of 33 - 5 - 0. (British Boxing Year Book 1988)

He was the son of what was then called a "physical culturalist," and was a well-proportioned, well-conditioned athlete.
