Priest “Tiger” Smalls is noteworthy for a picture of him and Muhammad Ali that appeared in a national magazine in the mid-1970s. Smalls had been invited to Ali’s famed training camp in Deer Lake, Pa. Only a toddler at the time, Smalls boasted to Ali that he would become heavyweight champion of the world. But genetics allowed Smalls to grow only into a lightweight. And he has been able to win a couple of WBO Titles at featherweight. Those titles were the WBO North American Boxing Organization and the WBO Inter-Continental. Smalls has also won a world title of the lightly-regarded Universal Boxing Association.
As a standout amateur, Smalls, also known as the Pride of The Wild, had a reported record of 92-11. Gifted with speed of hands and feet, and better than average power, Smalls is reported to have won several amateur titles in the Junior Olympics, Silver Gloves, Diamond Gloves, Golden Gloves and the AAU. He also won several military titles, while serving.
In 2013, “Tiger Smalls” was inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame.
