Referee Trivia

We note that: "Carpentier has the distinction of being the only boxer in history to have refereed a Heavyweight World Title bout before ever fighting in one himself; he officiated the 14 June 1914 Jack Johnson-Frank Moran bout." Is he the only boxer in history to have ever ref'd ANY title fight (not just heavyweight) before fighting in one himself? --Ric 20:13, 24 September 2006 (CDT)
