Joseph "Joe" Aloysius Lynch (November 30, 1898 in New York, NY – August 1, 1965 in Brooklyn Ny) was an American boxer who held the World Bantamweight Championship during his career. An extremely durable fighter, Lynch was never knocked out in nearly 160 bouts despite an aggressive fighting style. Statistical boxing website BoxRec lists Lynch as the #11 ranked bantamweight of all time, while The Ring Magazine founder Nat Fleischer placed him at #4. The International Boxing Research Organization rates Lynch as the 11th best bantamweight ever. He was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005 within the "Old-Timer" category.
He won the world bantamweight title in 1920, defeating Pete Herman. Herman defeated him to regain the title the following year. Lynch regained the title from Johnny Buff after Buff defeated Herman, defended it successfully against Midget Smith, but lost in 15 rounds to Abe Goldstein in 1924. He retired in 1926 and went to live in New City, NY.
