Solly CANTOR, Boxer: 1928-2005
Canadian lightweight who was more artful practitioner than brawler skillfully put away a parade of champions but never won a title himself
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, March 8, 2005 - Page S9
Solly CANTOR fought his way into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame despite never having won a professional title. Not blessed with knockout power, yet clever in using a debilitating left fist, Mr. CANTOR was more boxer than brawler. He won 41 professional fights, only six by knockout. He lost 14 and drew eight.
His nemesis in the ring was Montrealer Armand Savoie, against whom he had four fights in 1951 that were remembered for their spilt blood, much of it Mr. CANTOR's. He twice battled Mr. Savoie for the Canadian lightweight championship, losing both by decisions. One of those verdicts was widely considered to have been a travesty.
Mr. CANTOR earned his place among boxing immortals with non-title victories over a talented selection of lightweight titleholders Frank Johnson (a Commonwealth champion); Billy Thompson (British and European); Elis Ask of Finland (European); and Tommy McGovern (British).
A stinging left hand was Mr. CANTOR's calling card in the ring. He was adept at delivering a jab, a hook or a cross with that hand, a skill learned as a cocky amateur fighting out of the Central Young Men's Christian Association in his hometown.
Solly Cantor BONAPARTE was born in Toronto, the son of a taxi driver. His father, Louis CANTOROVICI, was a Romanian native whose family name had been altered to Bonaparte by a mischievous immigration officer. The Bonaparte children -- there would be four in all -- were born and raised in a house on Parliament Street south of Queen. Their Corktown neighbourhood was one in which it was advantageous to know how to punch.
The boy took up fighting after admiring boxers at a gym. His parents disapproved and never watched any of his matches; his siblings attended bouts at Maple Leaf Gardens, but would wait in the corridor, unable to bear the sight of Solly being hit. Happily, he was more likely to administer punishment than absorb it. That fast left fist allowed 17-year-old Solly BONAPARTE to score a close decision over Joe McPHEE -- one of the Fighting McPhees from Oshawa, Ontario -- to claim the Ontario amateur title in the 126-pound division on May 16, 1946.
Turning pro later that year as Solly CANTOR, he moved to Paterson, New Jersey, from where he was often added to the undercard of programs at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. After building an impressive 24-4-2 record, Mr. CANTOR moved to London, where he defeated Mr. Thompson, Mr. McGovern and Mr. Ask, all by decision.
A dispute with his manager led to a nine-month layoff. Mr. CANTOR returned to his hometown, where his fortunes became a staple of the sports pages. The reporters often called attention to the size of his nose, playing to a racial stereotype in common currency at the time.
Mr. CANTOR's boxing trunks bore a Star of David on the left leg, a sign not only of pride but also a nod to the unsubtle marketing of his sport. Some fans came to cheer a Jewish champion, others to see him beaten.
The first of four battles with Mr. Savoie in 1951 ended after the eighth round, with Mr. CANTOR needing six stitches to close a gash across the bridge of his nose. The losing fighter said a head butt had caused the wound; the victor insisted the cut came courtesy of "a stinging right cross." In any case, Mr. CANTOR had suffered only the second knockout of his career.
Mr. CANTOR won a rematch in June, setting the stage for a much-anticipated third showdown, this one before Mr. Savoie's fans in Montreal, with the Canadian championship in the balance. Mr. CANTOR scored often with his left, staggering Mr. Savoie with a straight-arm right in the sixth round.
As the bell rang at the end of the 12th and final round, the conclusion seemed clear, as boxing promoter Frank Tunney, sitting at ringside, would later describe: "The fight was so one-sided in CANTOR's favour that when the announcer first said, 'Winner by a unanimous decision...,' a bunch of us at ringside were busy talking and took it for granted the decision was CANTOR's, as it should have been. But when he added 'Savoie,' we nearly fell off our chairs. Then he had to correct himself to say it was a split decision. The partisan French fans booed the judges for minutes on end. Solly was jobbed."
The unpopular decision made necessary another obligatory rematch, held in Toronto six weeks later. Having lost the previous fight at ringside, Mr. CANTOR was not eager to allow the judges to settle the match. "I'm going out for a knockout," he said. "Maybe this one won't go the scheduled 12 rounds."
With an uncharacteristic aggressiveness, Mr. CANTOR lunged toward the champion in the opening round. The strategy was at first successful, but Mr. Savoie was soon crowding the challenger, absorbing his best shots with his gloves. A unanimous decision in the champ's favour was regarded as a just verdict.
"Solly is a terrific boxer, but he fought my kind of fight tonight," Mr. Savoie said. "I know if I tried to box him, I was beaten before I started. You have to work all the time against him. You have to stay inside him. And when you do hit him, he fights back and he won't fold."
After losing two fights in Alberta to George Dunn, an American who once arrived at Toronto airport and asked a cabbie to take him to Edmonton, Mr. CANTOR returned to England, where he ended his professional career and took up permanent residence.
His final bout came on October 4, 1955, when he scored a victory on points over Frank Johnson, the Manchester lightweight who had briefly held the Commonwealth title two years earlier.
Only 11 of Mr. CANTOR's 63 fights were held in Canada.
Mr. CANTOR worked as a court clerk after leaving the ring. A first marriage ended in divorce. He became a Methodist when he married his second wife.
In recent years, the old fighter found a renewed sense of purpose by joining the Croydon Ex-Boxers' Association. The group was "one big, happy family," Mr. CANTOR wrote Vancouver Sun boxing columnist Graham Houston seven years ago. "We were all part and parcel of each others' past."
Mr. CANTOR continued to attend meetings last year, even as he lost the use of his limbs from the motor-neuron disease that would claim his life. No one expected any less; he had answered the bell for every round of every fight but for four.
Solly CANTOR was born in Toronto on September 18, 1928 (although some boxing references put his birth date two years earlier). He died at his home in suburban Mitcham, outside London, England, on January 28, 2005. He leaves his second wife, Miriam; Brenda RAWSON, a daughter from his first marriage; brother Harold BONAPARTE and sisters Toby BAZKUR and Sarah MARCHILDON.
