Winner of the Southern Middle and Light-heavyweight Championships in 1947 and 1948, Brown was known as “One Punch Guy Brown.” Also known as a real “crowd pleaser,” Brown was popular with most of the promoters and boxing commissions in Charlotte, Gastonia and Asheville. Possessing great physical stamina, he was booked somewhere in the Carolinas almost weekly in the mid-1940s. As one of the top middle and light-heavyweight boxers of the era, Brown was coached by the legendary Ebb Gantt. In 1948 he posted 28 consecutive wins. Through 1947 it was reported that Brown fought in 341, winning 277. His career tailed off in early 1950.
