Joe Alexander , He was no "Ordinary Joe"


Recommended Posts

He had less then twenty professional fights but for anyone who followed the heavyweight division in the 1970's, they will not forget Joe Alexander. In twelve victories he scored ten knockouts. This guy could bang !


This New Yorker turned pro in 1968. He was short for a heavyweight at 5'9". In his second bout he suffered a one round KO defeat. Hey I didn't say he had Jake LaMotta's chin...In 1969, as a substitute he was halted by the capable Hal Carroll. No shame there. He came back in 1972 and in 1973 Joe outscored rugged veteran Leroy Caldwell. Two months later he shook up the heavyweight division with a shocking one round blitz of Jose Luis Garcia.
