James J. Braddock
(James Walter Braddock)
Braddock was a methodical plugger who was not flashy but diligently went about his work in a mechanical fashion; 
He was tough and could take a punch. Braddock was called the "Cinderella Man" because of his fairy tale-like win over 
poverty and Max Baer. He was elected to the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame in 1969.
