sport of boxing in 1946. He won his first 48 fights taking a 48-0 record
into the ring in February of 1949 against Tony DeMicco, 46-24-5, of
Schenectady, NY, in Buffalo, whom he defeated in October of 1948, losing
this time for the first time by majority decision. Just 13 days later they
had a rematch in Pittsburgh, PA, and Sala took a 10 round decision win in
the rubber match.
