Default Who The Hell Is That? Unidentified Boxing Photo Thread.

Well, I have a bin of a large stack of unidentified boxing photos I've accumulated through the years. Every once in awhile I go through it to see if any of the images ring a bell in my head, that for some reason didn't, last time I looked at it.

I imagine anybody who collects/accumulates boxing photos, has a similar pile.

Sometimes I embarrass myself that I missed a photo earlier, they are so obvious. Pulled out 3 today, I finally figured out. 2 were HOF'ers (Pedro Montanez, Tex Rickard) I should have recognized, and the 3rd was a press photo for a couple of more obscure 1930's boxers that had their last names scrawled on the back and a date stamp, that made their ID's easily searchable on Boxrec.

Anyways, hoping this thread serves as a place anybody can post a boxing photo that has you stumped, and then everybody else can pull their hair out, trying to figure out who they are.

Here's a couple possible Dana type photos to start it off. These would probably date somewhere in the 1904-1915 era. Both picture announcer Billy Jordan (the older Gentleman who looks slightly like John L.). He's the only one I'm sure about in each photo.

Here's another one. Looks like Fitzsimmons on the right, but who's the fella he's tangling with in front of the cool ass Lion in the background?

I don't recognize him and can't help, but... what the heck is going on in this second photo? We just have a lion chilling on the porch

Dovetailing with yours, I think this snapshot is Fitzimmons and Billy Papke. The homemade PC is addressed to Papke. He fought in Philly on the 14th, a week earlier, and won.

Adam, maybe promoter Floyd Fitzsimmons. Don't see Bob there.

Ahh, that makes sense. Looked him up and that's him. Thanks.
