Abe Goldstein

In 1924, Abe Goldstein defeated Joe Lynch to win the World Bantamweight championship. He is recognized as the #5 ranked Bantamweight of all time.

The 5'5" Goldstein, who had lost two previous title battles against reigning Flyweight champions, the first in 1921, moved-up a weight-class to capture the Bantamweight title. He successfully defended his title twice, before surrendering the crown nine months later.

At retirement his record was: Bouts: 128, 34 KOs, won 56 decisions, drew 11, lost 18 (4 by KO), 4 no decisions.
