Henry Jackson Jr., better known as Henry Armstrong, was one of the greatest fighters of all times. He won titles in three divisions (Featherweight, Lightweight, and Welterweight) during the years 1937-1940 when there weren’t many weight divisions.
He won over 75% of his bouts by knockout and he only stood 5 feet and 5 and one-half inches. His reach was 67 inches.
He was known in the ring as ‘Hurricane Hank’, ‘Homicide Hank’ and ‘Hammering Hank’. During a stretch between October 9 and October 30, 1939, he accepted five welterweight title defenses and won them all!
