The 1912 Olympic featherweight title is the only major international title that Koskelo earned and, during his career, he never won a Finnish title. After fighting in WWI and the Finnish Civil War, Koskelo emigrated to the United States in 1919 and settled in Astoria, Oregon, where he became a prominent local businessman.
