Bobby
Buzz-saw"
Zimmerman


BOBBY "BUZZ-SAW" ZIMMERMAN was a boxer from Camden, New Jersey. He was the original "Camden Buzz-saw", a tag adopted many year later by Dwight Braxton aka Dwight Muhammed Qawi, world-champion light heavyweight and cruiserweight in the 1980s.

The "Black Bill" that Bobby Zimmerman fought was a Cuban fighter, Eladio Valdes who fought as "Black Bill", primarily out of Havana and New York City. He was not Claude "Black Bill" Brooks, a Camden heavy-weight who had retired prior to Zimmerman turning professional.
