Did you know about Jimmy Britt's bar on the Russian River in Sonoma County,CA near Rio Nido? Gone now but it was there into the 70's.
I was at Jimmy Britt'a bar on the Russian Ruver as a kid. Jimmy was married to my dad's cousin. But I am guessing, although he was a boxer, hr was the son of the most famous boxer named Jmmy Britt. Can anyone confirm this and/or offer more info?
I remember that bar ... can still see the neon sign with the rendering of Britt throwing punches. The boxer Jimmy Britt died in 1940 ... fought 23 matches including numerous against top fighters.
JM, it's possible you have the wrong Jimmy Britt, sort of. Check out this wikipedia link.Post a Comment
