"Peerless" Jim Driscoll was born in Cardiff, Wales in 1881 and began his boxing career in 1901. He is considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter of all time. During his illustrious boxing career, he earned the title of featherweight champion of the world and won the coveted Lonsdale Belt.

*****

"Driscoll was the king of all boxers. From Driscoll, by a close study of his ways, I learned the wisdom of always leading with the left hand; he taught me much about stance, and how to time my blows so that they would have all the weight of my body behind them." Georges Carpentier
