Regarding the 1932 Leo Kelly v. Walcott bout; the chances of it being Jersey Joe are too small to suggest it in his Wiki-page. There were many Joe Walcott's fighting in those days, Leo Kelly was the West Coast, Jersey Joe from the East.--Wouter 06:01, 26 November 2006 (CST)

Missing Bout?

Here is Legwarmer's original post, which he put in the main page. It should have gone here instead:
"According to the 1937 Edition of Boxing News Illustrated, page 90, "Deacon" Leo Kelly knocked out a fighter named Joe Walcott in 5 rounds in 1932. In Heavyweight Champion Jersey Joe Walcott's record, there are no fights listed in 1932. Not clear if this is the same Walcott, however, I noticed that in the early 1930s, Walcott weighed around the supermiddleweight and lightheavyweight division, as did Kelly." --Ric 11:12, 26 November 2006 (CST)
