Let’s take another walk down my memory lane.
Some years back my wife and I were invited to attend a fight card in New Orleans. Our host was former heavyweight, now trainer Beau Williford. Although I’ve never been big on humidity, when it comes to the Big Easy and Cajun cooking, you don’t have to ask me twice.
During this trip Lois and I met and became friends with the late Angelo Dundee (whom I already knew), Deidre Gogarty, Billy Major and Suzanne Riccio Major to name a few.

Veterans Park District’s Leyden Boxing Gym in suburban Chicago was the scene of some hot and heavy action last week as a couple of undefeated fighters from the West Coast got in some work with a spirited sparring session.
Roger Romo from Oxnard, California brought his professional record of 5-0-3, and a wealth of experience, into the gym to work with Tacoma, Washington’s Mike Gavronski, who sports a professional record of 13-0-1. In addition to having worked with the likes of Sergio Martinez and Kelly Pavlik, Romo has grown up in boxing as the younger brother of two time world champion Fernando Vargas.
