Kid Gavilan to Carmen Basilio

Many Schenectady County fight fans of the 50s and 60s must remember that there was a slew of tough and very skilled boxers in the welterweight division during those years.  Some names that come to mind are Kid Gavilan, Sugar Ray Robinson, Tony DeMarco, Johnny Saxton, Virgil Atkins, Benny “Kid” Paret, Emile Griffith, and Carmen Basilio.
