Jimmy DeForest, a/k/a James Woods, a/k/a Kid Woods, also a member of a trapeze team called The Flying DeForests or The Five Flying DeForests, made his fame as boxing trainer. He trained, among others, Jack Dempsey for his championship fight on July 4, 1919. He also was attached to a circus known as “Wolf’s All Star Circus,” as well as the Barnum & Bailey Circus. I have a Route Book covering the Barnum & Bailey Circus for the year 1888. There are several Woods listed therein, one being James Woods and I believe that person to be James DeForest. Unfortunately I was only able to know him for about four years of my life. I am now trying to get any information I can about him.
