Strange But True: Busy Night

Preston Brown, a 125-pound boxer, thought he was pretty good with his fists. One night in 1913 he proved it. Brown was at the Broadway Athletic Club in Philadelphia when he announced that he would fight all comers, one at a time.

Six boxers accepted his challenge. Some were heavier than Brown. He knocked out the first five in early rounds and gained a decision over the sixth fighter.
