Johnny Kilbane Statue Unveiling

Johnny Kilbane was a featherweight boxer who held the world featherweight title from 1912 to 1923, the longest period in the division's history. He was the second longest world title holder in boxing history, behind only Joe Louis.

He was also an Irish immigrant and Clevelander.

Hundreds congregated at Battery Park in Cleveland for the unveiling of a statue of Johnny Kilbane by world-class sculptor Rowan Gillespie.

Lots of photos and videos from the Johnny Kilbane statue unveiling
