Black History Month: Celebrating Black Fighters

George Dixon

George Dixon, known as “Little Chocolate,” won the Bantamweight world title in London in 1890, which made him the first black man to ever win a world title (yes, even before Jack Johnson) in any weight class.

He also captured and defended the Featherweight title for an eight-year span. Hailing from Nova Scotia, the Black Canadian fighter is recognized and heralded as one of the best “smaller” boxers to ever walk the earth.

Dixon is also credited for inventing shadowboxing.
