New York -- Gerald "Tuffy" Ambrose Griffith made quite an impression on New York when he went through a short workout prior to his meeting Jimmy Braddock at the Madison Square Garden on Nov. 30th. Tuffy weighs 173 pounds and comes from Sioux City, Iowa. He attended Trinity College before entering the ring. (1928)

He went down. A TKO in the second.

Tuffy was played in "Cinderella Man" (2005) by Thomasz Kurzydlowski, who went on to have one real-life professional fight in 2007, a four-round decision victory in Huntington, New York. To my knowledge, as far as the worlds of Hollywood films and professional sports go, Kurzydlowski hasn't been heard from since.
