Heavy Weight Boxing Champions in Google Earth

Boxing Champions Muhammad Ali in Google EarthAnother entry for the sports category. One of the Google Earth Community members who calls himself ‘Up_The_Spurs’ recently posted a collection of placemarks for the birth places of all the heavy weight boxing World Champions. His collection goes from John L. Sullivan in 1882 to Nikolai Valuev on December 17, 2005.
The collection of placemarks shows not only the location of the boxing champions’ birthplace, but also provides details on the boxer. Included are date of birth, reign, a photo, and background on most of the champions. I’ve included a screenshot of Muhammad Ali for example. Nice work ‘Up_The_Spurs’.
