Joseph A. Raymond

Boxer in 1920s, 1930s

Joseph A. Raymond, a lightweight and middleweight boxer in the 1920s and 1930s, died Tuesday at the Meridian Nursing Center-Loch Raven after a stroke. The Baltimore native and longtime Towson resident was 84.

He retired in 1974 as an inspector in the city Department of Sanitation, which he joined in the late 1950s.

Mr. Raymond, who was promoted as a "slugging sensation," won about 30 bouts, lost 19 and had 10 draws, family members said.

His losses included bouts with Red Burman -- known as Clarence "K.O." Burns in his early days as a Baltimore boxer -- who lost a heavyweight championship fight to Joe Louis, and Ken Overlin, who later became a middleweight champion.

He, his late brother, Philip, who was a left-hander known as "One Shot Phil," and a nephew, the late Louis Raymond, were dubbed "The Fighting Raymonds" in local boxing circles.

After retiring from the ring, he worked at Bethlehem Steel Corp.'s Sparrows Point plant and owned the Tre-Mond, a bar and restaurant in Glen Burnie, in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

A Mass of Christian burial was to be offered at 11 a.m. today at Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church, 8501 Loch Raven Blvd., Baynesville.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, the former Catherine E. Colleran; a daughter, Rosemary Ebert of Parkville; a sister, Margaret Fulco of Baltimore; a brother, Harry Raymond of Florida; two granddaughters; and two great-granddaughters.
