Charles Taylor
Birth: Jul. 22, 1903
Terre Haute
Vigo County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 9, 1962
Terre Haute
Vigo County
Indiana, USA

Professional Boxer. Born in Terre Haute, Indiana, he was nicknamed the "Terre Haute Terrier" and undefeated in his first 21 fights, with nine knockouts and three draws. As a bantamweight boxer, on October 18, 1926, the National Boxing Association named Taylor the World Champion Bantamweight. He defended his title until May 18, 1928, when the NBA stripped him of it after he had begun fighting most of his fights in the heavier, featherweight class. He retired in 1931, with a record of 166 professional fights, 72 wins, 40 by knockout, 21 loss, 5 draws and 68 no contests. He died at age 52 in Terre Haute, Indiana and was posthumously inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
