From comments by Chuck Hasson, who provided the record of Reddish (IBRO #65): "Willie Reddish was born in Bamberg, SC. He came to Philly in 1932 where he won the Philadelphia Golden Gloves and the Middle Atlantic A.A.U. titles before turning pro. He was managed by Jack Puggy. He weighed around 182 lbs, but was one of the most avoided heavyweights of his day. Willie later became one of the leading trainers in Philadelphia, working with: Gil Turner, Toothpick Brown, Sugar Hart, Sonny Liston, Curtis Parker, Rudy Donato, etc. He died in Philadelphia."
