Inducted on November 9, 1995

Born on September 5,1951, Point Pleasant, NJ as Ted Groff. He changed his name legally to Ted Mannschreck in 1967, which evolved 
to Ted “The “Irish”” Mann for promotional purposes in 1977. Handled at different times as an amateur by Walter Marler, Johnny Trojian 
(Kid Troy), Adrian Bailey, Ricky Schupoch and Frank Lavalle. Beat seven different Golen Glove or A.A.U. champs (Fryer, Gargan, Fundenburg, 
Nance, Stahle, Johnson, McNeece). Won NJ Blue and White Tournament, October 18,1976. Runner up to Curtis Parker for State A.A.U. 156 pound 
title March 8, 1976.

Mann turned pro August 24, 1977, and was managed and trained by Carmen Graziano and promoted by Cedric Kushner. Mann ran up an impressive 
18-1 record before losing a 10 round decision to Philly legend “Bad” Benny Briscoe (62-18-5) September 11, 1979. He also fought future 
champs, Bobby Czyz (10-0), Doug “The Cobra” DeWitt (16-1), Dwight “Tiger” Walker (16-2-1), Mike Baker (39-14-1), Mickey Goodwin (26-1), 
Vinnie Curto (45-5-3), Juan Domingo Roldan (48-2-2) and John Collins (22-0). One of his most memorable wins was a 7th round knock out 
of Frankie Suarez (11-2) for the Florida State Middleweight Title, October 24, 1978 in Orlando. Another big step in Mann’s career was 
when he upset California contender Robbi Epps (30-1) March 20, 1982 in Atlantic City and broke into the world ratings. After a loss to 
James “Hard Rock” Green (12-1) he came up short in a bid for the ESPN Middleweight Title to Mike Tinley (13-1-1). He retired shortly 
after on November 30, 1984 with a 28-15, 15KO record. Always a fan favorite, Mann fought in many locations including Philadelphia’s Spectrum, 
New York City’s Felt Forum, and Atlantic City’s Resorts, Caesar’s Harrah’s, Sand’s and Tropicana Casinos.
