Yarosz was born the second of eight children on the North side of Pittsburgh, but when he was ten his family moved to Monaca, Pennsylvania, a suburb twenty-six miles away. His father died when he was only eight, putting economic pressure on him and his brothers. He quit school at seventeen to train for a boxing career to earn wages for his family. His brother Tommy was a boxer, as was his brother Victor, and his older brother Ed became an amateur boxer prior to Teddy who first put on a pair of gloves around twelve. His brother Joe won an all-service welterweight tournament during his time in the military. Teddy was known as a strong defensive boxer, and though he never recorded many knockouts, he lost only one bout by knockout against Babe Risko in January 1935.Yarosz became a professional boxer in 1929. He would eventually be trained by the legendary Ray Arcel and managed by Ray Fouts.
