Episode 11: Randall "Tex" Cobb

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.


Randall "Tex" Cobb is one of the funniest fighters to ever enter the ring.
