According to an article in the September 18, 1911 edition of the Los Angeles Times on Ancestry.com, Danny Webster's real last name was Brice. The article contained quite a bit of information about his life and boxing career, including a description about he adopted his ring name to conceal the fact that he was boxing professionally from his mother. She apparently caught on that her son was a boxer when she saw his cauliflower ear and became a big supporter of his career. At the time of that the article appeared in the Times, Webster had a wife and a daughter.
