I was personally honored to have been chosen to be the presenter of my friend Joe Valverde. Joe is a man with a most successful resume of high standards in the Los Angeles and Southern California areas.

I was also honored to have been chosen to be the presenter and speaker for the legendary Eddie Futch, who, in my view, was the greatest trainer in our era of boxing. He led 22 boxers to world titles, and has this amazing feat to his credit: of the five professional losses that the great Muhammad Ali had in his career, four of the five men to beat Ali were trained or managed by Futch.
