Lamar Clark
Birth: Dec. 1, 1933
Cedar City

Utah, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 2006
West Jordan
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Professional Boxer. He was a heavyweight contender who is best known for setting the record of 44 consecutive victories by knockout when he defeated Kenneth Hayden on January 11, 1960. The streak began on January 11, 1958 when he defeated Willard Whitaker and ended when he was knocked out by Bartolo Soni on April 8, 1960. During his career it was not uncommon for Clark to fight multiple opponents in one night. On December 1, 1958, Clark knocked out six opponents in one evening. His last professional fight was in 1961 against a young Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali). During the fight, Clark was knocked out in the second round and suffered a broken nose. Some of his other notable opponents include Dynamite Jackson and Tony Burton. In 51 career bouts, Clark won 47 (45 knockouts) and lost 3 with 1 draw. (bio by: C.S.)
