Passaic New Jersey’s TONY ALONGI

By Jim Amato

Tony Alongi was among the better heavyweights of the 1960’s that time has forgotten. Alongi amassed 46 fights from 1959 to 1967 . Tony won nine straight fights in his maiden year of 1959. He followed that by winning twelve more in 1960. In 1961 he stepped up the quality of his opposition. Tony won seven more contests. Among his victims were Tod Herring, Jefferson Davis and George Logan.
