Charlie Polite started off his career by defeating Abe Davis, Benny Spinola, and Kid (John) Crockett. However, his next 3 fights ended in losses. He later fought Joe Frazier, but lost by 2nd round KO. He fought in 49 more fights, and compiled a record of 17 wins (6 by KO), 39 losses, and 3 draws. By the time he fought George Foreman in an exhibition bout, he had lost 30 of 46 professional fights; in that fight, he went all of the scheduled three rounds, and kissed Foreman on the chin while the referee read the instructions.
