One of the funniest boxers that ever lived. A true character that found fame in Hollywood during and after his prolific heavyweight boxing career. Cobb had an all-time great chin and was a serious contender for the heavyweight crown.
He would go the distance with Larry Holmes in 1982 and later appear in movies and television as a villain throughout the 80s and 90s. He's a native Texan with a thick southern drawl. Despite his roots in Texas, he's called the fighting city of Philadelphia home since he started training at Smokin' Joe Frazier's gym early in his fight career.
