Professional Boxer. Born in San Francisco, California, he was a bantamweight street fighter who turned professional in 1903, winning his first five bouts. On June 19, 1909, he defeated Frankie Neil at Coffroth's Arena Coma, California and won the World Bantamweight title. He defended his crown seven times until losing the championship to Frankie Conley in 1910. In 1916, he retired from boxing because of an eye problem that eventually led to his going blind. He ended his career with a record of 53 wins, 23 by knockout, 27 loss and 20 draws. He died at age 75 in San Francisco, California. His brother Abe Attell was the Featherweight World Champion (1901-12), making them the first pair of brothers to hold world titles simultaneously. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
