Joe Coburn (born July 29, 1835 in Middletown, County Armagh, Ireland – died December 6, 1890 in New York City, New York) was an Irish-American boxer. In 1862 he claimed the Heavyweight Championship from John Carmel Heenan based on Heenan refusing to fight him. Mike McCoole claimed Coburn's title in 1866 after Coburn retired. Coburn came out of retirement in 1871 against Jem Mace. The first fight between the two was broken up by police before a blow was struck. In the second fight, Mace injured his hand in the fifth round and the fighters agreed to call it a draw. In 2012, Coburn was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
