(Fall 2019 Edition)
The Fall season is here and once again it’s that time to say thank you to all for making this website one of your choices in boxing. It is my pleasure and I treasure the opportunity to provide the best of boxing as I know it to everyone.

The young ladies that have modeled my products over the years have certainly added beauty and, although not professional models, they have contributed with class and charm.
The attractive website hat displayed in the photo above (thank you model Sandria) is a top selling product. It is embroidered with the official logo on the front and website address on the backside. It has an adjustable Velcro strap to fit all sizes.

It has now been two months since we lost one the greatest boxers, Pernell Whitaker. He was a champion in four different weight divisions, and accumulated an outstanding professional record of 40 wins, 4 losses, one draw, and one no-contest, with 17 by knockout. Many have asked me where I rank him amongst the elite lightweights of all time. My ranking is at #6, with my top ten being (in order) Benny Leonard, Roberto Duran, Joe Gans, Tony Canzoneri, Jimmy McLarnin, Pernell Whitaker, Carlos Ortiz, Ike Williams, Freddie Welsh, and Battling Nelson.Continue reading FROM THE DESK OF: David Martinez
