Michael Strauss Jacobs (March 17, 1880 – January 1953) was a boxing promoter, arguably the most powerful in the sport from the mid-1930s until his effective retirement in 1946. He was posthumously elected to the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 1982, and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990

The czar of all Boxing in New York, controlled all the Champions, under contract to him. Called the Octopus as, he dictated who gets to fight, whom he chooses, not by merit, alone.
