Bob KO Sweeney

Boxer John Kraynak (December 15, 1894, Plymouth, Pennsylvania – June 14, 1961, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA) used the name Bob "KO" Sweeney because it was a more "Irish-sounding" name that would result in a bigger draw for his fights. He is perhaps best known for his bout against Bob Fitzsimmons, for it is believed by some to be the first bout ever captured on film.
