Sarron was best known as a fast, elusive battler, with a windmill attack. During his career he defeated such opponents as Benny Bass and Frankie Covelli. He lost his World Featherweight Championship to the gifted Henry Armstrong in a sixth round knockout at Madison Square Garden.Pete Sarron was born in Birmingham, Alabama on October 21, 1906. He was of Syrian descent, according to the orphanage where he grew up. Like many boxers of his era, he made an early living selling newspapers, beginning at age six. Early in life, he found Dave Evans at the Birmingham Boy's Club who mentored him in boxing, and helped manage his career. He would return the favor and support the club after becoming a successful boxer. After High School, he had ambitions to study law and become an attorney.
