(Summer 2018 Edition)
It’s Summer time folks and I thank you for making my website one of your choices in boxing. It is my absolute pleasure to provide the best of David Martinez Boxing that I can offer.
This month is my 11th anniversary; it was on July 15, 2007 that I first brought dmboxing.com full circle for all boxing fans world-wide. In the eleven years, I have made an amazing 1,492 publications on this site, an average of 11 postings per month.
To celebrate 11 years, I am offering my official website hat at $18.00. The hat is an attractive blue in color, embroidered with website logo on front and website address on back side. It has an adjustable Velcro strap, so one size fits all.
To order, send check (NO cash please) to: David Martinez Boxing, 810 Coronel Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93109 … as my anniversary offer, I am including FREE shipping to anywhere in the USA.
There is a small but outstanding group of people that help to enhance and make this website the success that it is and I would like to acknowledge them at this time. They are: Bob Quackenbush (Proof Reader and Lead Assistant); Tom Donelson (Author, Member of Boxing Writers Association of America); Jim Amato (Senior Boxing Writer and Boxing Historian); Harold Lederman (HBO World Championship Boxing and Hey Harold!); Steve Corbo (Proof Reader and Boxing Writer); Kathy Kraft (Proof Reader); and in memory of Rusty Rubin (R.I.P.) who was the first contributor to my website in July 2007… may his soul rest peacefully in heaven with the Lord.
