Professional Career

Billy Snow (born November 7th, 1955) was born and raised in London, England. He was the European Heavyweight Champion before venturing to the states and taking on more prominent fighters. Snow never held the Heavyweight Championship during his career but was once considered as an opponent by Apollo Creed's team, only for Apollo to turn the offer down due to Snow's habit to foul during his fights.

During his prime, Snow fought some of the best and beat most of them with his aggressive never-say-die tactics. Snow had the heart of a lion and the strength of an ox, but lacked self-discipline and constantly let his temper get the better of him in the heat of the moment.[1]
