Johnny Finazzo was one of the seven boxing Finazzo brothers, including Victor, Jackie, Joe, Eddie, Sam, and Anthony Finazzo (1915-1958, who had only one amateur bout and never fought again). (There was later an Al Finazzo, who was probably related somehow.) The seven brothers had two sisters: Anna and Frances. Johnny was born in 1924 and died in 1963, exact dates unknown. He was active in the ring from 1941 to 1947.

Their parents, Samuel and Grace Finazzo, emigrated to the United States from Italy in 1908, and settled in the Lexington Market area of Baltimore, Maryland. Their father was a tailor by trade.

Six of the Finazzo brothers set a record by appearing on the same card August 15, 1938. [1]
