Today I will be talking about this legendary boxer and he was truly a remarkable and gifted boxer in his, he also fits the category of one the boxing great to ever grace the ring. Actually, will be writing more posts on some of the 8 black boxers who were among the best of their generation in 1930-40’s, who did not let them fight for a world title because of their skin color.

Chase was from texas and most of his great fights were at his hometown, Actually, like Muhammad Ali, he also started his boxing with a different name which is 'Young Joe Lewis' for the early part of his career, before he switched to Jack Chase in 1942 and the reason best known to him.

His official fight record is 122, but it is believed that he competed in over 40 additional fights prior to 1936, during which time his full record is unknown. Nobody has information about that record, but it is likely that it is in some hidden library.

He was according to many experts a boxer with great technique, very good counter-punching, who could fight with the right and the left. His style was that of a boxer who did not waste blows and always thought about the ring, adapting to his rivals.

He was ranked second in the world in his division, but never participated in a world title fight. He is included in the set remembered as Black Murderers' Row that they were so feared they were not given a title shot.

Not having access to a world title he had to face the rest of the Black Murderers' Row many times in very bloody battles. He beat Eddie Booker; he lost to Charles Burley 3 times; beat Aaron Wade twice, and had a draw; He beat Lloyd Marshall one, tied one, with a tie; Lost to Cocoa Kid; he lost against Holman Williams 4 times, but it is known that all by controversy all reached points.

Chase won several regional belts in the USA, including the Colorado state title, the Rocky Mountain regional middleweight and welterweight titles in the 1930s, and the California state light and middleweight titles in the decade. 1940. He retired from boxing in 1948.

He died in 1972 at the age of 58 of arterial complications and diabetic, after receiving many blows. He, like all the rest of Black Murderers' Row is a legend unknown to the boxing fan.
