Additional Information: 

Tony "Two Ton" Galento was an American heavyweight boxer who is well known for his colorful antics both in and outside the arena. Born Dominic Anthony Galento, Tony earned the nickname "Two Ton" for a famous incident in which he was nearly late to one of his matches. Upon being asked why he nearly missed the fight, Tony responded with "I had two tons of ice to deliver on my way here." A natural showman, Galento engaged in a series of publicity stunts throughout his career. Galento once campaigned as a representative of the Prohibition Party in a fake run for president. In addition, Galento also famously wrestled an octopus and boxed a kangaroo as well as a bear.​​
