Harry Krohn

The “Akron Thunderbolt” was the kind of fighter who always made a hit with the fight fans. From 1915-26, Krohn battled the best in the middleweight and light heavyweight divisions. In a 1920 bout in New York City, he knocked out Canadian middleweight champion Mikan McTigue in the 11th round. Two years later Krohn lost a close decision to middleweight champion Brian Downy in a non-title bout at the Akron Armory.
