No film of Holman Williams of Murderers' Row was thought to exist. Until now.
"Murderers' Row" was a particularly ferocious set of eight black fighters active in the 1940s. They were avoided by the welterweight and middleweight champions of that era and none of them got a world title shot; and so they fought each other. Charley Burley, Holman Williams, Lloyd Marshall, Cocoa Kid, Eddie Booker, Bert Lytell, Jack Chase, and Aaron "Tiger" Wade had a 62 fight tournament in tank towns for short money. None of them emerged unscathed.
They have been shrouded in mystery due in part to the sad fact that there isn't much film of them.
Holman Williams was the best technician among them and has a strong argument as being the best technician who ever lived. Film of him just turned up, thanks to JJ Johnston and Doug Cavanaugh. This is 15 seconds from his third fight against Young Gene Buffalo in Detroit on March 21, 1941.
