Floyd Patterson, Middleweight, 55-8-1
Gold Medal – 1952 Olympics, Helsinki, Finland
Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion
Patterson is given credit for a quote that nearly every coach in every sport has regurgitated to his players after a tough loss. While they often take creative license for their own purposes, here it is: “They said I was the fighter who got knocked down the most, but I also got up the most.” When he wasn’t doling out wisdom about never giving up, he was one hell of a fighter, winning the heavyweight title at only 21 years old.
