July 29th, 1870
In Halifax, Canada, George Dixon was born. George would go on to make history, being the first African American to conquer a world championship and the first in winning two weight categories- bantamweight and featherweight.
For us, the historic achievements of Dixon, are not sufficiently recognized.
