Ronald Rawson was probably the most dominating boxer of the 1920 Olympics. None of his three opponents finished their matches with him. His first two matches were stopped in the third and first rounds, respectively, while in the finals he defeated SÃ¸ren Petersen by a knock-out in the 2nd round. Rawson retired after winning the 1921 Amateur Boxing Association (Britain) Championship. His career record was 28 wins with no losses, and 27 wins by knock-out. Petersen later became a respected Danish professional boxer. In 1924 he was still an amateur and again won the silver medal in the heavyweight division.
