Dave Shade (March 3, 1902 – June 23, 1983) was an American boxer active from 1918 to the 1935, amassing a total of nearly 250 bouts fought during the course of his career.[1] His famous low crouching bob-and-weave style earned him a reputation as one of the cleverest boxers of his time period.[2] Although Shade never captured a world title, he fared very well against the best boxers of his era including the likes of Mickey Walker, Jack Britton, Maxie Rosenbloom, Len Harvey and Jimmy Slattery.[3] Shade was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011.[2]
