Today Mike and Cedric discuss these two great boxers with their special guests! Jack Chase was an African-American middleweight, who boxed in the 1930s and 1940s. He was born in Texas and fought mainly on the west coast of the United States. He boxed under the name ‘Young Joe Lewis’ for the first part of his career, before changing to Jack Chase in 1942. Hilton Edward Booker was an American boxer who was active during the 1930s and 1940s. Booker was one of the famous "Murderers Row" group of black boxers, along with the likes of Charley Burley, Holman Williams and Jack Chase, avoided by other elite fighters of the era because of their ability and their skin colour.
