Floyd Patterson Biography
Growing Up, A Needed Change, Back In The City, After The Gold, ChronologyCONTACT INFORMATION, SELECTED WRITINGS BY PATTERSON:
Floyd Patterson became the youngest heavyweight champion, a record he held onto until a young fighter by the name of Mike Tyson entered the ring almost four decades later. A fast-moving and clever heavyweight with a snappy punch, Patterson was by no means the strongest of fighters, but he had resilience and heart, and he called upon his determination to overcome severe psychological handicaps and remain a contender in the ring for over two decades.
