Havana-born boxing world champion Eligio Sardinas (aka., Kid Chocolate) didn’t just change the sport of boxing for Latino athletes, in many ways he defined it. He became Cuba's first world boxing champion when he knocked out the defending world Junior Lightweight champion in seven rounds to take the world title and racked up an impressive record including 136 wins (51 knockouts and 85 decisions).

His passion and style inspired future champions such as Sugar Ray Robinson, who was a big fan of Kid Chocolate and incorporated a lot of Chocolate's boxing technique into his own. In fact, Robinson went on record as saying that he had never seen anyone box like Kid Chocolate and that he’d incorporated much of Chocolate’s slick movement and graceful flair into his own boxing style.

In the end, Kid Chocolate returned to his hometown and became a forgotten champion, abandoned by the boxing elite who profited from his novelty and only modestly recognized by the government for the honor he brought back to Cuba. As we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month we pay a special tribute to Chocolate’s prestigious legacy as a fighter who hammered his way into a new sport that Latinos had never been part of and in doing so opened up a realm of new possibilities for himself and generations to come.
