Harry "The Black Panther" Wills (May 15, 1889 – December 21, 1958) was a heavyweight boxer who three times held the World Colored Heavyweight Championship. Many boxing historians consider Wills the most egregious victim of the "color line" drawn by white heavyweight champions. Wills fought for over twenty years (1911–1932), was ranked as the number one challenger for the throne, but was denied the opportunity to fight for the title. Of all the black contenders between the reigns of Jack Johnson and Joe Louis as world heavyweight champions, Wills came closest to securing a title shot.

  • Harry Wills (* 15. Mai 1889 in New Orleans; † 21. Dezember 1958 in New York) war ein US-amerikanischer Schwergewichtsboxer.

Peter Jackson (Boxer)) Wills besiegte mehrfach Sam Langford, auch ein gefährlicher Afroamerikaner, der keinen Titelkampf bekam sowie den argentinischen Dempsey-Herausforderer Luis Firpo. Am Ende seiner Karriere trauten sich doch einige Weiße, gegen ihn anzutreten und er unterlag Jack Sharkey und Paolino Uzcudun.
  • Harry "Pantera Negra" Wills (15 de mayo de 1889, Nueva Orleans Estados Unidos – 21 de diciembre de 1958, Nueva York) fue quizás la víctima más conocida del racismo en el boxeo, cuando se le negó repetidamente la posibilidad de combatir por el título de campeón de peso pesado del mundo, estando clasificado como el primer retador. El título perteneció a una seguidilla de boxeadores blancos, después de que lo perdiera el boxeador afroamericano Jack Johnson.
