The 1940's and 50's are still considered by many to be the glory days of boxing, and Carey Mace was a prominent presence during that era. Mace fought in the late 1940's and 50's. He was a member of Willie Pep's stable, and Pep was part of the first CBHOF induction class in 2005. Mace at one time was the eighth ranked welterweight in the world. Mace finished his career with a 72-18-2 record. His last bout was in 1962, a loss to CBHOF member Gaspar Ortega. The fight was in Mexico. Mace's most notable win came in 1950 when he stopped former champion Joey Giardello. Mace was born in Hartford, where he fought several times early in his career. He was living in Manchester when he passed away at the age of 73 in 2003.
