Dai Dollings
Having trained marathon runners and the great Ted 'Kid' Lewis in the UK, Dollings moved to New York where - in the period around 1914 - he worked with a young Ray Arcel, teaching him how to analyse fighters. Dollings was a legend at Grupp's Gym on West 116th Street, the top New York fighting gym before Stillman's emerged.
