Mendoza, Daniel

   British prizefighter. Daniel had learned to fight in the East End of London, and was billed as ‘Mendoza the Jew’. Although essentially a middleweight, he worked out a series of techniques which enabled him to take on heavier opponents. His continued successes were noticed by the Prince of Wales, and he was the first boxer to be accorded royal patronage.
   Mendoza opened his own academy and wrote two books, The Art of Boxing (1789) and his Memoirs (1816). His name was included in the United States Boxing Hall of Fame in 1954.
