The unprecedented outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has resulted in owner Henry Calles temporarily ceasing operations at Duke’s Boxing and Fitness, 6565 Trigo Road, Isla Vista, California 93117 다운로드. To say that I will miss the workouts and coaching the kids is truly an understatement.

Through the years I have always told our kids “the jab is the most important punch in boxing” 암살교실 1기 다운로드.

A jab is the lead punch and isn’t commonly referred to as a power punch. However, there are many boxers who have had such powerful jabs, they might as well be considered power punches 다운로드. One who is tops in this category was Sonny Liston.

By Steve Corbo

NOTE:  Steve Corbo, is a veteran of more than 35 years in the boxing game, has been a co-host and color commentator for televised boxing events, as well as a professional boxing judge 다운로드. He has worked with professional boxers in a variety of capacities, and has written several articles on boxing that have been published in various periodicals 다운로드. He has made his mark as a top boxing ring announcer, especially in Europe, where he announced major WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO World Championship title bouts televised worldwide 리모콘 어플. Harold Lederman, Boxing Hall of Fame member and a part of HBO Boxing’s broadcast team, called Steve Corbo “one of the best boxing ring announcers in the entire world.” A Chicago native, Steve has also been heard as the backup PA announcer for the Chicago Blackhawks NHL hockey team 영어책 다운로드.

I will always remember this fight because I was there, at ringside, close enough to reach out and touch Cleveland Denny. In the late 1970’s my friend Johnny Lira was the USBA Lightweight Champion and one of world’s top rated lightweights 7공주 mp3 다운로드. In ’79 he lost in his bid to capture the WBA World Lightweight Title.

A year later, Ring Magazine had him rated #5 in the world , he was looking to get back into the mix and get another shot at the title. Johnny was going to fight Gaetan Hart on the undercard of Sugar Ray Leonard vs Roberto Duran, up in Montreal. The bout was scheduled for June 20,1980. But they weren’t able to make the fight and Cleveland Denny wound up in the ring facing Hart, instead of Lira. Johnny, myself and Mauro DiFiore decided to go up to Montreal anyway and see the show. What a show it was, taking place at the Olympic Stadium and in the same city where just four years earlier Sugar Ray Leonard won a Gold Medal in the 1976 Olympics. Johnny was on top of his game so we were with Angelo Dundee, Wilfredo Benitez, media guys like the dean of all boxing historians Hank Kaplan, etc. We were surrounded by boxing royalty. We had no tickets, but somebody hooked us up and we got in on some TV/Radio Press Passes! We had no assigned seats! I ended up sitting in Leonard’s corner, on a folding chair I picked up from someplace, next to Joe Frazier. We talked about his son Marvis, who was an amateur at the time, and had just won the National’s.

When people ask me for my opinion on underrated fighters, and there are many, one of the first names that pops up in my mind is Billy Graham 다운로드.
