Per Luckett Davis: The published first year of Charles's professional record (1940) is evidently inaccurate. Corrections to be made are listed below:

Deleted: 6/24/40, Bradley Lewis, San Francisco, KO-3. A check of a San Francisco newspaper shows that this fight did not occur on this date. However, Charles and Lewis actually fought exactly one year earlier in San Francisco as amateurs. --Ric 00:25, 30 Jul 2005 (CDT)

The Negro almanac‎ [1] by Harry A. Ploski and Roscoe Conkling Brown in 1967 has Charles winning the Diamond Belt in the welterweight division in 1937 and 1938. --Bert
