Profile: Daniel Mendoza


We get a lot of requests to profile old-time boxers. Well, it doesn't get more old-time than Mendoza.

Thanks to Joel from Canada for the suggestion.

  1. My I add that Daniel Mendoza is the great-great grandfather of actor/comedian Peter Sellers.

    From Mendoza's wiki page (references in popular culture section).....
    "The actor Peter Sellers was Mendoza's great-great-grandson, and he hung portraits of the boxer in the backgrounds of several of his films."
