TOE TO TOE: Jimmy McLarnin (left) and Tony Canzoneri are two of the greatest boxers ever. They had a two-fight welterweight series in 1936, Canzoneri winning the first by a unanimous decision at Madison Square Garden in New York and (pictured here) McLarnin winning the rematch by a unanimous decision at the same venue. McLarnin outweighed Canzoneri by 6 1/2 and 8 pounds in the two fights, respectively.
