Description

Gypsy Joe Harris was a man of unfulfilled destiny; always one step away from the true greatness he sought. This blind tiger was able to defeat many of the best fighters in Philadelphia during a time when boxing was king and a man's worth was measured by how well he could use his fists. While battling the likes of Curtis Cokes, Stanley "Kitten" Hayward, and boxing legend Emile Griffith, Gypsy Joe Harris compiled a professional ring record of 24-1. What separated him from all the rest, was the fact that most of his fighting career, and virtually all of his professional career, he fought blind in one eye! This boxing legend, although showing phenomenal skill, had a penchant for distaining a regular training regime. Gypsy had no problem indulging in fast food, fast women and fast cars, and was still able to outclass his opponents. This is a story of a man who rose to the pinnacle of the boxing world and just as quickly fell to the depths of despair and hopelessness. This is his story. The story of Joseph Louis Harris, the son of the city of Philadelphia; AKA, Gypsy Joe!
