In the era from the 1890's to 1918....
"...several Greeks shone...in boxing. Kharalambos Stathakis (pictured above) is said to have won a middleweight title on the western goldfields about 1912, and two descendants of the Zannis family, John Jannese and Bert Spargo, are said to have won boxing titles in Victoria."
