Harrison was the subject of a movie "Resurrecting the Champ" played by Samuel L. Jackson. Harrison now homeless in Santa Ana, CA. was born in Kingston Jamaica but grew up in Chicago. He said he had fought under the name of "Battlin" Bob Satterfield. He actually didn't, but was ranked higher than Satterfield by Ring Magazine in 1953. He's content living on the streets and answers to the name "champ" to passersby. He had made some money in the ring, saying he used to spend $1000 in a night back in the day with fancy suits and driving a pink Cadillac. He now has a broom and can be seen sweeping in front of shops occasionally being given money for his efforts.
