The World Welterweight Champion in 1929¬30 and 1932¬33, Jackie Fields was only 16 years old in 1924 when he captured the Olympic Featherweight Championship, the youngest man ever to win an Olympic boxing crown. Fields won the National Boxing Association (NBA) Welterweight Championship in March 1929, with a decision over Young Jack Thompson. Four months later, on July 25, he captured the World Welterweight crown when a second-round foul disqualified defending champion Joe Dundee. Fields lost the world title to Thompson in May 1930, but regained it a second time with a decision over Lou Brouillard, who had taken the crown from Thompson. In 1962, legendary fight manager Jack Kearns called Fields the best all around battler the United States has ever produced. As an amateur, Fields won 51 of 54 bouts. His professional record: 87 fights won 74 (30 KOs), drew 3, lost 9, 1 no-contest. Fields was elected to the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1977.
