Remembering "The Cincinnati Cobra"

On this day in 1921, heavyweight world champion, International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee and one of the greatest light-heavyweights of all time was born. That man was none other than Ezzard 'The Cincinnati Cobra' Charles.

Happy Heavenly Birthday Champ, Rest in Peace.

'Ezzard was the toughest man I ever fought. I learned what pain was all about when I fought him' - Rocky Marciano

They had a grueling fight where Marciano's nose was split in half.
