Boxrec always shows the age in the boxer profile, if the date of birth is known.

I just did a quick check. Yes, I found the age listed in many cases. But in many other instances, there was no age or DOB. This is in contrast to the way that Boxrec's system worked in the past, when age and DOB were always listed.

On another thread, someone indicated that a law was passed in Europe mandating that information such as age and DOB can no longer be legally posted in the fighter's profile.

For which many active listed boxers there is no age on Boxrec? Give examples ... DOB cannot be published, as you know.

I was looking over your listings for events at the Cleveland Arena. Quite comprehensive but there are a few errors. The Cleveland Arena wasn't opened until November of 1937 and the final fight show there was in November of 1973. The fights listed for 1932 on the Cleveland Arena list were either at Cleveland Public Hall or the Equestrium, Taylor Bowl or even Central Armory. First Cleveland Arena Show was December 6, 1937.

It ended in the 7th via stoppage, mistaken scorecard.

There was something called the Cleveland Arena that ran five shows in 1932, it was located at the corner of Hough Avenue and Ansel Road well east of the Cleveland Arena. I have went ahead and named it Rockefeller Park Arena, to differentiate it from the more well known venue. If you know of a better, more accurate name for that venue, let me know.

Is this what you meant? Shown as active, no DOB but age listed as 40

Regarding the Cleveland Arena which existed from late 1937-1973 for boxing. Several fights for 1964 list Don Elbaum as promoter. Larry Atkins promoted during those times. This was verified by Plain Dealer articles from those fight cards. Don Elbaum's reign at the Cleveland Arena started with fights in 1969. The only differences was the card featuring Irish Billy Wagner and Hal TNT Carroll on November 29, 1972, which was promoted by Bruce Trampler. Don King's only fight card at the Cleveland Arena was on November 28, 1973, featuring Jeff Merritt and Ron Stander. However Don Elbaum was the matchmaker for that show.

Thanks,

Poor old Ron. Smokin' Joe couldn't KO the "Butcher Boy" but his punch resistance was shot to pieces by the time "Candyslim" got to him. He could whack a bit could Mr. Merrit as Earnie could testify :D

Gervonta Davis is not#1 at 140 by beating a regular champ.

Please do not go down the drain with illogical rankings. Taylor being undisputed is clearly the#1 rank. He holds ALL THE MAYOR BELTS. A regular belt is not the real champ.

I think if a thread is considered boring, frivolous or stupid then it tends to sink very quickly anyway (like most of mine do :oops: )

If a thread is popular and/or interesting then it tends to stick around. If it's a good thread then i have no objection to several being the work of the same poster.

:lol: Yeah, great idea; let's limit postings on a posting board. Referring to prior poster.

maybe consider putting some indication on amateur records that they might not be complete, so many ppl are under the misconception that the often highly incomplete am records listed on boxrec, which mostly include tougher fights at national and international level competition, are the fighters full amateur history. ...the most recent one is someone thinking caleb plant's entire amateur career was 9-11, but it's happened several times

plus ive seen a number of boxers get offended because their am record on boxrec gives a misleading idea of their amateur success to ppl who dont realize it's only a partial record, made up mostly of their higher level fights that are toughest to win

Maybe I'm missing something as I have been away for a while, but why has the date of births of all the boxers been taken away?.... I've looked up several today just to be sure, including recent fighters who had their dob listed previously, but they have all gone?!!. :verysad:

I think what would be a really cool feature would be if BoxRec had a "mutual opponents" algorithm where you could take two different fighters currently or in the past and at a click of the button get a complete list of mutual opponents between the two.

It certainly would cut down on research time dramatically rather than having to pull up two different records and comb through manually.

Indeed. I guess taking the idea further it would be good if a fighters record could be filtered too, so you could show all fights at a certain weight, or in different years, different states/countries etc. I imagine it will involve a whole new redesign or new database tool though.

What would be a nice algorithm for BoxRec to come up with, to see how many southpaws somebody fought in their career without having to look at every single name also.

Hrgovic vs Radonijc had four (yes, four) KDs in the second round, and the scorecards cannot go under 10 - 6, like they do in FightScore. Just to report.

Hi - great to have the amateur records and expanding it every day.

Just one thing - I feel all inside the distance victories should be labelled ‘Kos’ in the overall stats line at the top - just the same as the professional records are.
At present only official kos (now very rare in ams) and Tkos are counted. Rsc, Rsf (if it exists), Rtd etc and all stoppages inside the distance should be reflected in the stats line.

Great work though guys :TU:

Lorente won by decision, not TKO.
