Professional Boxer. Born Armando Giosa, he was a top ranked lightweight contender of the 1940s and 1950s. After an outstanding career as an amateur, he would win his first eighteen consecutive bouts after turning professional in 1943. Giosa who was known for his quick hand speed fought some of the greatest boxers of that era, including Sandy Saddler, Willie Pep, Beau Jack and Paddy DeMarco. The best fights of his career occurred in 1950, when he had decision victories over former world champions Bob Montgomery and Carmen Basilio. Giosa retired from boxing in 1954 and was inducted into the Pennsylvania Boxing Hall of Fame in 1979. In 106 career fights, Giosa's record is 67 wins (10 knockouts), 30 losses and 9 draws. He died of kidney failure.
