    Butcher Boy was a outstanding match dog that was owned by Norman H. Hooten in the late 1960s. He will be remembered for his match that was titled the "Day of the Upsets".

    Butcher Boy's first match was in Oklahoma in June, 1969, when he was matched into the great 2X winner, Kennedy's Booger Red. Butcher Boy killed Booger Red in the pit in :36 minutes.

    It was in Butcher Boy's 2nd match in 1969 in Mississippi against Edward's Luke, a 2X winner, that Butcher Boy scratched into Luke so hard that he actually knocked Luke's handler completely OUT of the pit at least 5 times. Butcher Boy killed Luke in the pit in :32 minutes making Butcher Boy a 2X winner.

    The "Day of the Upsets" was in 1972 and that was day that Butcher Boy won his championship match over Corn's Smokey, a son of Bullyson. He was the only favorite to win his match, which went 15 minutes as Smokey just could not take what Butcher Boy had for him and quit cold.

    His true test came in 1973 at six years of age when he was brought out of retirement, after being treated for heart worms twice, to go into the 2X winner, Stinson & Perry's Sampson. Sampson, Carver bred dog had beat a dog of M. Carver's at 56 lbs and was in his prime at 30 months of age. Because of Butcher Boy's age and the fact that it was known that he had been treated for heart worms twice, he was a 3 to 1 underdog going in. But, he beat Sampson by biting him down in 1:45 minutes in a classical match. Both, Sampson and Butcher Boy died after this great match. Butcher Boy was awarded Best of Show for his dead game , hard biting efforts.

    He was, truly, a once in a lifetime dog.
