A dear friend to the boxing community recently passed away last month, Arnie Koslow at the age of 88. Arnie was loved by all that knew him and was an honored member of the Golden State Boxer’s Association and was on hand for almost every luncheon that are held by the organization on a weekly basis.
He was an outstanding time keeper for over 1500 boxing matches in the Los Angeles area in his career. He would always tell members his favorite fighter was Joe Louis and as GSBA president (pictured) Bill Dempsey Young stated “Arnie will truly be missed by all” is certainly an understatement, as we all knew Arnie as truly a wonderful human being.
There will be a celebration of Arnie’s life this Sunday, February 10th at the Stevens Steak House, 5332 Stevens Place, Commerce, CA 90040, at 1pm.
May Arnie’s soul rest in peace in heaven with the Lord.
