Tony Canzoneri beat thirteen different world champions, gained decisions over hall of famers Baby Arizmendi and Billy Petrolle and fought two razor thin battles with Barney Ross. He reversed wins by world champions Bud Taylor, Andre Routis, Johnny Jadick and he was within a shade off being the third boxer in the history of boxing in holding three world championships at one time.
