James D. Norris, president of IBC, holder of exclusive contracts with most world champions, multimillionaire pal of hoodlums and murderers.
Vince Martinez, third-ranking welterweight who might well be champion soon if only he could get a fight. Won eight fights in 1954, four of them by knockouts.
Frank Carbo, killer so terrifying to the fight mob that some dare not say his name, preferring the descriptive, "the gray-haired guy." Norris named one of his race horses "Mr. Gray," an alias Carbo sometimes uses now. He seldom goes to fights.
Hymie (The Mink) Wallman, a furrier who manages fighters too.
Harold Johnson, a light heavyweight who ate a bitter orange and lost a fight.
Louis Saccaroma, a former dope pusher who hangs around fight camps.
The governors of three great states (see above).
