Fighter: Jack Root
Division: Heavyweight
Record: 47(15) - 10(1) - 3
Retired: Random

Notes: - Root goes 18-2-2 as a HW but never got a title shot. Losing to Jack Downey dropped him down too far in the ratings for him to get back up. Root was well established at LHW. He won the WBA LHW title on 08/11/02 with a KO6 over Joe Choynski. He defended it 5 times before losing it to Leo Houck. He won right back from Houck in the next fight. He lost the title after one defense but then won the WBC LHW title on 11/08/06 against Jack O'Brien. He lost it in the rematch.
