FROM THE DESK OF: David Martinez

The Spring season is officially here and it’s that time once again, as I do on a quarterly basis, to say thank you to a small team of people that help make dmboxing.com the success that it has become since the first publication on July 15, 2007 다운로드.

I would like to acknowledge these people, who are: Bob Quackenbush (Lead Assistant / Proof Reader); Tom Donelson (Member Boxing Writers Association of America); Steve Corbo (Boxing Writer / Proof Reader); and Kathy Kraft (Proof Reader).   

There are three other people who are no longer with us (R.I.P.) that contributed in a tremendous way to this website, and they are Rusty Rubin (In Rusty’s Corner / Glove2Glove), Harold Lederman (Hey Harold 다운로드! / HBO World Championship Boxing), and Jim Amato (Senior Boxing Writer / Boxing Historian). These men were my dearest of friends, never to be forgotten, and resting peacefully in heaven with the Lord 다운로드.
