Leonard “Lenny” Sund

His professional boxing career started auspiciously when, at age 14 and a promising flyweight, he fought and defeated the promising bantamweight Willie Griffith. His career soared from that point
and training and fighting out of the Keystone Club, Wilmington, he went on to become a well-respected fighter at Cambria Club, Philadelphia, then one of the East Coast’s best.  The flyweight
realized his crowning victory in 1925 when he decisioned Mickey Morris for the state flyweight title. Lenny’s professional career read 180 wins and two losses. He was undefeated the first four years
and last six years of his career, and one of his losses was to Young Danica, Philippines flyweight champ. He was named “City’s Top Main-Bout Fighter” in the 1964 Old Timers Sports Group banquet at
Defiance AA.
