Pancho Villa
(Francisco Guilledo)
Villa was an explosive and relentless fighter who hit hard with both fists, fighting in the fashion of a "miniature" Jack Dempsey. Many consider him to be the greatest Asian fighter ever. Among those he defeated were Johnny Buff, Abe Goldstein, Terry Martin, Jimmy Wilde, Benny Schwartz, Georgie Marks, Bud Taylor, and Clever Sencio

Villa died of blood poisoning from an infected tooth 10 days after his last fight. Both Nat Fleischer and Charley Rose ranked Villa as the #2 All-Time Flyweight; He was elected to the Ring Boxing Hall of Fame in 1961 and International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994.
BORN: August 1 1901; Iloilo, Phillipines
DIED: July 14 1925; San Francisco, California (blood poisoning)

Mr. Bohol...thanks for posting something about Pancho Villa. I was planning to start a thread about him, but you beat me to the punch...OK lang. My grandfather, Francisco "Paquito" Villa adopted Fransico Guilledo and gave him the name Pancho Villa ( his namesake and that of the Mexican revolutionary leader).

As the story goes, my lolo was managing a stable of Filipino boxers in Manila where Pancho was a janitor at the gym in exchange for a place to sleep. My lolo took kindness to Pancho and brought him home. One day he approached my lolo and told him that he wanted to be a boxer. My lolo said no because he thought he was too skinny. But Pancho was very persistent and my lolo gave in. My lolo called in his best boxer and told him to give Pancho a hard time with the intention to discourage him from being a boxer. When they sparred, Pancho knocked out my lolo's best boxer within a few seconds... and as they say the rest is history!!!

My lolo and Pancho lived in New York between 1921-1923 during his championship campaign. My lolo got Frank Churchill as their American manager. They lived the high life while in NYC, wine, women and song as they say. By the way, I now live in New York and have walked along the historic fight venues such as the Ebbets Fields and the Old Madison Square Garden.

Also, while you posted the official stats of Pancho Villa's fights, the truth was, as told to me by my dad, Pancho had many unofficial pick up fights to support their extravangant lifestyles. Sometimes, he would fight twice a week.

I have many more first hand accounts of my lolo and Pancho's adventures in New York...next time.

Hi mr. bohol, Lolpop is my bilas. I certify that all he said is true. He has more accounts of Pancho Villa from documents left behind by his lolo in their (now) ancestral home in Makati. I really like his lolo's account of the incident with President Manuel L. Quezon, but I'll wait for lolpop to relate that one.
