Randall "Tex" Cobb
Randall Craig "Tex" Cobb (born May 7, 1950) is an American former boxer who competed in the heavyweight division. Widely considered to possess one of the greatest chins of all time, Cobb was a brawler who also packed considerable punching power. He began his fighting career in full contact kickboxing in 1975 before making the jump to professional boxing two years later. He challenged Larry Holmes for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship in November 1982, losing a one-sided unanimous decision, and took wins over notable heavyweights of his era such as Bernardo Mercado, Earnie Shavers and Leon Spinks. In addition to his fighting career, he has also acted in numerous films and television series, usually appearing as a villain.

The Night Tex Cobb Saved My Life
In November 1982, Philadelphia Daily News columnist Pete Dexter went to Houston to watch his friend Randall "Tex" Cobb fight Larry Holmes for boxing's heavyweight championship. In the coming days, we'll republish Dexter's four columns from the event. Below, you'll find the first one, originally published on Nov. 23, 1982, as "Cobb Refused to be the Retiring Kind." In it, Dexter writes for the first time about the night Cobb saved his life. For more on Dexter, go here.
