Remembering ‘Skeeter’ McClure: Olympian, Middleweight Contender, Psychotherapist

“He was as good a fighter then as Sugar Ray Leonard was later,” said the legendary Madison Square Garden matchmaker Teddy Brenner in 1984. “If he’d been brought along slowly, he could have done everything Leonard did.”

Brenner was referencing Wilbert “Skeeter” McClure. Considering that McClure ended his pro career with a record of 24-8-1, it would appear that Brenner was exaggerating, but McClure’s pro record was a poor barometer of his career accomplishments and when it came to evaluating talent, no one had a more respected opinion than Teddy Brenner. Also, as his post-boxing life would show, McClure was a man cut from a very fine cloth.

Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, the son of a farmer turned sewing machine repairman who was an avid reader,  Skeeter McClure was the dominant amateur junior middleweight in the world between 1958 and 1960, winning two national AAU titles and an Olympic gold medal. He was one of three members of the U.S. boxing team to win gold at the 1960 Games in Rome, joining Eddie Crook, a 31-year-old Army sergeant, and an 18-year-old phenom from Louisville named Cassius Clay.

In Rome, McClure was matched against local fan favorite Carmelo Bossi in the finals of the 156-pound competition. He was clearly trailing after two frames, but mustered a big rally in the third and final round to pull the fight out of the fire.

McClure would recall that he almost turned down a spot in the Olympics as it meant that he wouldn’t be able to work and save up money that summer for his next semester of college at the University of Toledo where he was on course to graduate with a degree in English. Recognizing the publicity value of having an Olympian in their midst, the school stepped up and waived his tuition.

The 1960 Olympics were the first Summer Games to be telecast in North America and for that reason are often considered the first modern Olympics. But not every event was televised. McClure’s family didn’t learn that he had won the gold medal until the next day when they heard it on the radio. “Ours was the last of the innocent Olympics,” said McClure in 1998. “Athletes weren’t taking steroids or being chased by shoe companies. Nowadays, the money pressure is so big, the spirit of the Olympics has become corroded.”

McClure made his debut as a Madison Square Garden headliner on Aug. 4, 1962. In the opposite corner was Farid Salim, the middleweight champion of  Argentina. McClure only had nine fights under his belt. Salim was a 12/5 favorite.

Skeeter out-classed him. “(McClure) beat his taller and more experienced opponent with crisp left jabs, repeated left hooks, and lightning-fast combinations to the head as he circled constantly away,” said the UPI correspondent. A return visit to Madison Square Garden, where he won a unanimous decision over Bahamian veteran Gomeo Brennan, prefaced his crossroads fight at the Garden with Luis Rodriguez.

McClure was 14-0 heading into the nationally televised fight, but he was in too deep against the Angelo Dundee-trained Rodriguez who was 52-3, with all three losses by split decision, two to future Hall of Famer Emile Griffith, a man he would subsequently defeat.

The fight was close, but McClure lost a unanimous decision. They met again 10 weeks later in Rodriguez’s adopted hometown of Miami Beach with the same result, only this time the Cuba-born Rodriguez won by a wider margin.  McClure was 10-6-1 from that point on, the draw coming in a rematch with Rubin “Hurricane” Carter who was awarded a split decision over McClure in their first meeting. He retired after being stopped in the 10th-round by teak-tough Billy “Dynamite” Douglas, the father of James “Buster” Douglas.

After his fourth pro fight, McClure was drafted into the Army. That  impacted his training, but was fortuitous as it enabled him to continue his education under the GI Bill. He eventually earned a PhD in psychology from Detroit’s Wayne State University which led to a job teaching at Boston’s Northeastern University where his specialty was group therapy. He purchased a condo in Chestnut Hill and settled into the life of an academician with his ever-present pipe and (presumably) tweed sports jacket with leather elbow patches. (After he quit teaching, he had a private practice, taught seminars for industrial clients, and was a consultant to the Brookline (MA) Police Department on police/community relations.)

In 1993, McClure was appointed to the Massachusetts Athletic Commission, rising to the post of chairman. During his tenure he initiated several reforms including mandatory AIDS testing. But he resigned after only five years after butting heads with newly appointed state boxing commissioner Mark DeLuca. He thought it inappropriate that DeLuca allowed his two children to sit ringside in seats reserved for boxing officials and did not hold back his feelings.

Looking back on his pro career, McClure said, “If anybody wanted a textbook case of how to take a good fighter and ruin him, I was it.” No doubt it grated on him that Carmelo Bossi, who had only four pro fights outside Europe, losing all four, was navigated into a world title shot and emerged with the title.

But McClure was never bitter, at least not outwardly. In fact, he had only good things to say about the sport which taught him important life lessons and opened doors that enabled him to achieve goals that he likely would not have achieved otherwise. “When I look back on my career,” he told the late Dick Schaap, “I don’t remember beating up on guys, I remember out-thinking them.”

After leaving the commission, McClure supported boxing in other ways. He was an active member of RING 4, the New England branch of the Retired Boxers’ Association. Longtime boxing scribe Ted Sares, a member of the organization’s Hall of Fame, would write that much of what he learned about the history of boxing was learned talking with McClure at RING 4 luncheons.

olympic

During the last decades of his life, when journalists sought out Wilbert McClure they always veered the conversation into McClure’s recollections of his famous amateur teammate. “Even then,” he told Thomas Hauser, “you knew (Muhammad Ali) was special; a nice, bright, warm, wonderful person.” In a widely syndicated newspaper story by the aforementioned Schaap, McClure said, “I think Ali was as great as he said he was. He had a destiny that would not be swerved.”

Wilbert McClure, who had health problems the last few years of his life, died last week (August 6) at age 81. “Skeeter” never achieved anywhere near the level of fame that would envelop Muhammad Ali, but he was a great boxer and an even greater person.

“One Night in Miami”: Film Review by Thomas Hauser

One-Night-in-Miami-Film-Review-by-Thomas-Hauser

On February 25, 1964, Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. defeated Charles “Sonny” Liston in Miami Beach over the course of six remarkable rounds to claim the heavyweight championship of the world. Late that night, the new champion found himself in a room at Hampton House (a black hotel in segregated Miami) with Malcolm X, several other followers of Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, and football great Jim Brown. Soul singer Sam Cooke (a friend of Clay’s) had been at the fight, but there’s no historical record of his being in the hotel room with the others at that time.

One Night in Miami is built around imagining what transpired in that room amongst Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke. Directed by Regina King from a screenplay by Kemp Powers, it’s available on Amazon Prime.

The film fits into the genre known as historical fiction. Dramatic license was taken. Viewers should understand that, at times, it’s allegorical rather than an accurate factual recounting. The larger question is whether the film is impressionistically honest. The answer is “yes.”

One Night in Miami begins with the 1963 fight between Clay and Henry Cooper in London. It then segues to Cooke being treated rudely by an all-white audience at the Copacabana, followed by Jim Brown (the greatest running back in National Football League history) being reminded by a patronizing southern gentleman that he’s just a “n—–.” Next, we see Malcolm as the Nation of Islam’s most charismatic spokesman, after which the scene shifts to Liston-Clay I.

Thirty-four minutes into the film, the drama moves to Hampton House.

Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke were prominent in different ways. Each was young, black, and famous. But Malcolm was a social and religious figure of considerable intellect while the other three were known as entertainers.

The dialogue between the four men is light at first and then turns serious.

Malcolm is played by Kingsley Ben-Adir. On what should have been one of the greatest nights of his life, his world is slipping away. His deadly rupture with Elijah Muhammad is almost complete. Soon, Clay will abandon him. Ben-Adir comes across as a bit weaker and more tentative than one might expect, although Malcolm’s intellect is evident in his performance.

It’s hard to imagine anyone playing Cassius Clay well except the young Muhammad Ali. But Eli Goree bears a resemblance to Clay and is pretty good in the role.

Jim Brown was an intimidating physical presence. Aldis Hodge lacks this physicality but his performance is solid.

Leslie Odom Jr, who plays Sam Cooke, has star quality. He’s the only one of the four major actors who has the charisma and presence of the man he’s portraying. But as a result, Cooke has a stronger on-screen persona than Malcolm. That’s a problem as tensions between the two men boil over.

Toward the end of the film, Malcolm reveals that he intends to leave the Nation of Islam because of differences with Elijah Muhammad and will found a new organization.

“Who’s gonna be in this new organization?” Clay asks.

“I think lots of people will follow me over,” Malcolm answers. “Especially if you come with me.”

Clay, of course, didn’t follow Malcolm. He sided with Elijah Muhammad. One year later, he and Jim Brown were the only participants from the hotel room gathering as portrayed in the film who were still alive. Sam Cooke was shot to death in a California motel on December 11, 1964. On February 21, 1965, Malcolm was assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem.

One Night in Miami cautions us that our icons are flesh and blood human beings with strengths and flaws. In its best moments, the film is a powerful reminder that the issues of self-respect, black empowerment, and racial equality are timeless.

Crossover star Holly Holm Adds New Dimensions to Claressa Shields

Kelsey McCarson

Published

on

Crossover-Star-Holly-Holm-Adds-New-Dimensions-to-Claressa-Shields

She laughs about it now, but back then it wasn’t all that funny.

Boxing champion Holly Holm was competing in her first professional MMA fight, and all her years of training inside the ropes as a world champion boxer had just taken over her entire body.

Holm had kicked her opponent down to the ground, so she did what any well-schooled boxer would do. She pivoted away from her fallen prey and headed over to the neutral corner.

All of that was wrong.

“What are you doing?” her coach yelled from cageside. “Finish her!”

It was Holm’s first big mistake in moving over from boxing to MMA, but she was lucky that night. It turned out that Holm’s opponent was finished whether she had run over there or not, so it was a lesson she could learn without much consequence.

But the instruction of that moment stands true today, so it’s just one of the many things Holm has shared with 25-year-old boxing champion Claressa Shields as the two-time Olympic gold medalist attempts to follow in her footsteps.

“I was thinking yeah, that will definitely happen to me!” Shields said.

After Shields signed a three-year promotional deal in December with the Professional Fighters League (PFL), the first thing Shields needed to do was look for the right gym.

Shields found that place at Jackson Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico, one of the most famous MMA gyms in the country, and the one most recognized among the masses as the home gym of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holm and pound-for-pound king Jon Jones.

Holm remains the only fighter (male or female) to have won legit world championships in both boxing and MMA, and Shields said Holm welcomed her to Jackson Wink with open arms.

“She’s been super great and very nice to me. We both come from the same background…and she actually turned out to be a world champion [in MMA], actually turned out to be really good,” Shields said.

But Holm’s funny story about her first MMA fight is something that points to just how large a hill Shields has decided to climb.

Whereas pop culture has just recently started to realize the power of habits through the work of writers such as Charles Duhigg and James Clear, it’s something professional fighters have known for a long time now.

“Oh, you’re going to have a habit of this because you used to box.”

That’s something Holm tells Shields almost every time they work together, and there are just so many examples.

In fact, just watching the 25-year-old boxing champion trying to learn to do all these new things in a different way is exhausting.

That Shields practically lives inside the gym for weeks at a time so she can train four or five times a day for all the kinds of things she never had to worry about before as a professional boxer is a testament to her seriousness and her courage.

But perhaps the most amazing part of the entire story is that Shields still plans on boxing.

While Holm won world championships in both sports, she achieved those things separately. Meanwhile, Shields said she wants to do the same thing Holm did but at the same time.

So, while I’m standing there with her inside an MMA cage in New Mexico, Shields is plotting fights in both sports. On one hand, she’s talking to me about a title unification bout in boxing against Marie-Eve Dicaire. On the other, she’s talking about future superfights in MMA against the likes of UFC champ Amanda Nunes.

“I’m trying to separate the two,” Shields said specifically about her training that day but she might as well have been talking about her whole life right about now.

It’s arguably the most amazing storyline right now in combat sports.

Shields started boxing when she was just 11 years old. She earned her first gold medal at the Olympics at 17 and her second four years later.

Today, Shields is a three-division world champion, and she says she’s not nearly finished adding to her growing number of boxing belts.

But all those years and all those successes have built so many habits. Ducking and slipping is great for boxing, but both become considerable detriments to defense when you suddenly have to worry about things like knees and kicks.

And what about wrestling and jiu-jitsu?

But all that stuff together is exactly what makes Shields’ epic decision to dare to be great at both sports at the same time so amazing in the first place.

Look, Shields might never accomplish the same amazing feat Holm did when she shocked Ronda Rousey in 2015 for the UFC women’s bantamweight championship.

But she’s aiming to eclipse that incredible mark anyway, and with Holm and many others offering Shields ideas about what she needs to think about as she climbs up the steepest hill she can find, she’ll definitely have her best chance at doing it.

Boxers Fighting the Best and Doing It Again for the First Time: Part One

Ted Sares

Published

on

Boxers-Fighting-the-Best-and-Doing-It-Again-for-the-First-Time

Britain’s Martin Murray has fought the very best and has now closed out a heartbreaking if not admirable and old school career.

Others are just beginning to hit their stride and suddenly the possibilities are mouthwatering.

The buzz is back on. The heat is coming. No excuses. No badly injured shoulders. No running. This is macho explosive. This is the best fighting the best like it used to be done. Cherry picking is not allowed.

Back in the day, warriors like Ernie Durando, Kid Gavilan, Joey Giardello, Tony DeMarco, Bobby Dykes, Paul Pender, Joey Maxim, Holly Mims, Bobo Olson, and way too many others to list here would fight other top-notch boxers. It was the norm; not the exception. Tony DeMarco beat Kid Gavilan in 1956 and then fought Gaspar Ortega three times in a row in a relatively short period of time.

In the process of compiling a 95-25-1 record, Ezzard Charles engaged in an eye-popping 27 fights against men who would go on to be enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame and/or the World Boxing Hall of Fame.

The List

Rocky Marciano (twice) – IBHF/WBHF

Joe Louis – IBHF/WBHF

Jersey Joe Walcott (four times) IBHF/WBHF

Archie Moore (thrice) IBHF/WBHF

Joey Maxim (five times) IBHF/WBHF

Jimmy Bivins (five times) IBHF/WBHF

Charley Burley (twice) IBHF/WBHF

Harold Johnson IBHF/WBHF

Lloyd Marshall (thrice) WBHF

Gus Lesnevich WBHF

In addition, Charles had three fights with Rex Layne, two with Ken Overlin, two with Elmer Ray, and one with Bob Satterfield

“Some day, maybe, the public is going to abandon comparisons with Joe Louis and accept Ezzard Charles for what he was—the best fist fighter of his particular time”  –Red Smith

Beau Jack, Aldo Minelli, Yama Bahama, Johnny Cesario, Fighting Harada, Eder “Golden Bantam” Jofre, Vicente Saldivar, Jose “El Huitlacoche” Medal, and then later Juan LaPorte and Livingstone “The Pit Bull” Bramble did not know what easy opponents meant. They were willing to fight anyone anywhere and were seldom stopped.

Vito Antuofermo, Ralph Dupas, Willie Pastrano, Curtis Parker, Bennie Briscoe, Kassim Ouma, Emanuel Augustus, Scott LeDoux, Ben Tackie, Ray Oliveira, Renaldo Snipes, Freddie Pendleton, John Scully, Charles Murray, Ted Muller, Anthony Ivory, and Alfredo “Freddy” Cuevas were also representative of those who would fight anyone anywhere. Picking made-to-order opponents was not what they were about.

Ali, Norton, Young, Quarry, fought one another. So did Duran, Leonard, Hagler, and Hearns. Across the pond, Watson, Benn, and Eubank did the same. Frazier, Holyfield, Mugabi, Tszyu, Cotto, and Chacon never ever backed away, nor did Mexican notables Castillo, Marquez (JMM), Morales and Barrera.

No one will accuse Floyd “Money” Mayweather of not fighting the best but they might point out that Floyd sometimes used long time intervals between bouts to his advantage. “Money” was not a particularly active fighter. The phrase “cherry picking” gained traction during this time.

Still, Andre Ward cleaned out an entire division. Cotto fought Pacquiao and Canelo, De La Hoya met Pacquiao, Klitschko faced Fury and then Joshua. Fury — after beating Klitschko — fought Wilder twice. Chisora will fight anyone they put in front of him. Heck, GGG fought 24 brutal rounds with Canelo and if that wasn’t the best fighting the best, what was?

“…great fights lead to other great fights.”—Max Kellerman
