The Monday, July 31, 1944 edition of the Montreal Gazette stated that Sam Buxbaum
"says that wrestlers can seldom be converted into good boxers because their reflexes are
too slow.  Paul Berlenbach was the outstanding exception.  Toots Mondt and Charlie
Cutler, big names in wrestling, were both ambitious to become boxers at one time and
trained with Buxbaum when he operated a gym out in Denver many years ago.  But they
took Sam's advice and abandoned the effort.  On the other hand, few if any boxers ever
made the grade as wrestlers."
