As I travel life’s path, I consider myself truly blessed 다운로드. Why? Because I get to live the the sport that I enjoy the most – boxing!

It all started in 1960, watching the Gillette Friday Night Fights on a black and white TV set in the living room with my father 쇼미더머니4 노래 다운로드. The following year, I began attending the wrestling and boxing matches at the historic Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles with my uncle. Watching these events in person and “in living color” was such a treat for a young kid; these are incredible memories which I will never forget 드래곤 길들이기2 다운로드.

At that young age, I also tried to educate myself by talking to the older generation regarding the fights they had seen and what life was like in eras before my time 뮤직 천국 다운로드.

Through the past sixty plus years I have lived and enjoyed the journey!

In Part 1 of “Boxing’s Unsung Heroes”, I referenced an article by Ted Sares Diffuse download. In his piece, Sares mentions a couple of Chicago guys, Anthony Ivory, and Alfredo “Freddy” Cuevas. Two tough pros who took on all comers. With an overall record of 26 wins – 10 losses -1 draw, in a career that spanned 13 years, Cuevas had KO wins over Charles Murray and Wilfredo Rivera 데몬 가상드라이브 다운로드. He came up short in bouts against Marco Antonio Rubio, Jermain Taylor, John Duddy, Santiago Samaniego, Kasim Ouma, Kingsley Ikeke, Michael Rask and he split a couple of bouts with fellow Chicagoan Anthony Ivory 대통령의 시간 다운로드.

Ivory’s Herculean record is a virtual “Who’s Who”. Boxrec  lists his record as 32 wins – 78 Losses – 6 draws 초서체 다운로드. But in those 78 losses, he was stopped only 5 times. Ivory went the distance and lost decisions to the following future, or former, World Champions . Their records, at the time they fought Ivory, are in parenthesis:  Kelly Pavlik (18-0), Yuri Foreman (12-0), Keith Holmes (36-3), Felix Sturm (6-0), Silvio Bronco (35-4-2), Mikkel Kessler (7-0), Sammy Serrano (49-6-1), Julio Cesar Vasquez (Twice 37-1 & 58-3), Davey Hilton (27-1-1), Carl Daniels (25-0), Simon Brown (35-2), Laurent Boudouani (18-1), Winky Wright (Twice 27-1 & 30-1), Chris Pyatt (42-4), Vincent Pettway (42-6-1), Hacine Cherifi (25-3-1), Diosbelys Hurtado (16-0), Akhmed Kotiev (twice 14-1 & 18-1), Armand Krajnc (15-0) and KO Artist Yori Boy Campas (52-0). A true globetrotter, Ivory fought in 15 different countries. This is a guy who knew how to survive in the ring…

Nice to see English boxer Martin Murray get some favorable publicity recently, in an article by Ted Sares 연속지적도 다운로드. Murray, previously featured on is a real Pro 다운로드. What a career this guy has. His record stands at 39-6-1. In 46 pro fights he was stopped only once, by Triple G, in 2015, for G’s WBA, IBO & WBC Middleweight Titles.  He dropped decisions against Sergio Martinez for the WBC World Middleweight Title, dropped a split decision to Arthur Abraham, in Germany, for the WBO World Super Middleweight Title and fought Felix Sturm to a highly controversial Draw, in Germany, with Sturm’s WBA Super World Middleweight Title on the line 5인의 탐정가 다운로드. He also lost a decision to Billy Joe Saunders, on December 04, 2020 in a bout for the WBO Super Middleweight Title. That’s five (5) shots at a world title and along the way he captured the WBA Interim World Middleweight Title java 첨부 파일 일괄. Hope I got all the alphabets right… but It doesn’t matter. This kid Murray can fight! 

Unfortunately none of his fights have been on US soil 다운로드. For years Murray had been denied a US Visa, due to legal problems. I heard he finally was able to get things straightened out but, as of this date, he has yet to set foot in a US Ring. Perhaps he never will. The losers here have been the US fight fans, who never really got a chance to know Murray or see him fight in person. I sure wish this guy would have come up in Southern California!

Opening Night of Fight Club OC Shows – Set for Thursday, June 10, 2021

UPDATE: Orange County, California

To all the great fans who have supported Fight Club OC for the past 10 years, here is what the Fight Club OC shows will look like in this new year of 2021 다운로드. Knowing that the Covid-19 situation and the protocols required by the California State Athletic Commission still make it difficult to stage shows in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, promoter Roy Englebrecht is announcing that the first Fight Club OC show of 2021 will take place on Thursday, June 10th 다운로드.
Englebrecht Promotions & Events will stage four Fight Club OC shows instead of their customary six shows, with 2021 Thursday dates now set for June 10th, August 26th, October 21st, and December 2nd 다운로드.
“As much as I want to get back to putting on Fight Club OC shows and to satisfy the many fans who have been in touch with me wanting to get back to attending, I didn’t want to rush things too early and then have to cancel a show,” said Englebrecht 웹소설 조아라 다운로드. “I believe that by June most people will have been vaccinated and will feel comfortable attending with other fans, plus the state should be allowing fans to attend sporting event by that time.”   To all Fight Club OC Season Seat Holders, VIP Suite Holders, and Sponsors, a 2021 Renewal Packet will be mail out by early April and be assured that your seats and suites locations will still be where you had them in 2020 다운로드.

Back when I was a kid in the fifties and sixties, I would come across a magazine called The Referee that was either at my father’s barber shop or at the local newsstands nearby 다운로드.

It was actually in 1961 that I would start to obtain these magazines to educate myself with boxing and wrestling. It was mainly a west coast publication that was published to serve as a fight program with updates for the upcoming various events 2017 엑셀 가계부 다운로드. It was available at fight venues as well as news-stands.

Although, I do not have every issue, the issues I have are certainly treasured collectables 까텔레나.

The Greatest Lightweights of All Time

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian /

Over the many years that I have rated fighters in either different weight divisions or from their born countries, this 135 pound weight class is most likely the closest in overall talent 스위치 디아블로3 다운로드.

My usual format is ranking the top dozen (12) with a select group of honorable mentions, but in this division I will rank my top twenty (20) great lightweights 최신 코덱 다운로드.

My rating of boxers is based on the height, peak, prime, pinnacle of their careers as I see fit.  Who-beats-whom at different stages of their careers isn’t a factor in my “pound for pound” formula 다운로드.

There are many situations where one fighter loses to another, and I actually rate the losing fighter with a higher “pound for pound” ranking 코믹 메이플스토리 다운로드.

Some classic examples of my method are, and these are fighters that lost twice to their opponents: Gene Tunney beating Jack Dempsey, Sandy Saddler beating Willie Pep, Jim Jeffries beating Bob Fitzsimmons, Evander Holyfield beating Mike Tyson, Aaron Pryor beating Alexis Arguello, Rafael Herrera beating Ruben Olivares, Iran Barkley beating Tommy Hearns, Oscar De La Hoya beating Julio Cesar Chavez, Riddick Bowe beating Evander Holyfield, Fighting Harada beating Eder Jofre, and it goes on Netbus download!
