I am delighted to say “Happy 12th Anniversary” this month to my website 다운로드. The founding date was July 15, 2007. That was the day when I brought to the world.

I also want to say thank you to all of you fans that have kindly supported this website with respect and loyalty 샌드 프리미엄 다운로드. It’s your input that fuels me to be the best I can be in boxing.

I want to say that the passing this May 2019 of one of my best friends, Harold Lederman, was just devastating 다운로드. To lose such a wonderful human being was heartbreaking for us all.

Harold was a true iconic figure in boxing 왓츠업 다운로드. We met over twenty years ago, during my tenure on the Board of Directors and as Boxing Historian with the World Boxing Hall of Fame. Since then, we remained in close contact, and his “Hey Harold” podcast videos were a huge hit on my website.

It was my honor to stand for him in October 2013, when Harold was to be inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame. Due to his commitment with HBO World Championship Boxing to be at ringside for the Ruslan Provodnikov vs. Mike Alvarado, WBO Super Lightweight title fight in Denver, he was unable to attend his induction ceremony. He then chose me to receive his much deserved award in his absence.

I miss Harold, and he will never be forgotten. May his soul rest peacefully in heaven with the Lord.
