FROM THE DESK OF: David Martinez

(Summer 2022 Edition)

It is truly a joy to announce that on July 15th this month officially celebrates a milestone … fifteen years online 다운로드.

The website started back is 2007 and since then I have published 1,894 articles and features world-wide 리턴1979.

It’s absolutely a delight to bring you boxing, as I have produced this site to be the best that I can provide.

Along the way, I have been truly blessed to become acquainted with a wonderful array of fans, with some becoming the closest of friends 다운로드.

I am also grateful to have a special core group of people that have enhanced the success of the website 다운로드. First off is John Boitnott, who had the vision to believe in me and was the first webmaster. After serving a trial period learning the mechanics of a website, I am now a proud producer 갓오브곡괭이 3d.

There are others in that group who have certainly contributed to the continuing success, and I’ll start with a trio of individuals that are no longer with us (R.I.P.) – may their souls rest peacefully in heaven – Rusty Rubin, Harold Lederman, and Jim Amato. These three have provided a wealth of boxing knowledge to the website.

Rusty was my first writer and featured his monthly column, “In Rusty’s Corner”, and also “Glove2Glove” which offered prayers for the sick, needy, and deceased.

Harold provided his own video shorts called “Hey Harold!” which previewed upcoming major fights to be shown on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Jim was nothing less than brilliant with featured stories on boxers of the past and present. His expertise as a true boxing historian was priceless.

A team of others that certainly have contributed to the highest degree are Bob Quackenbush (Proof Reader / Photo Editing / Lead Assistant), Tom Donelson (Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America), Kathy Kraft (Proof Reader), and Steve Corbo (Proof Reader / Boxing Writer).

The list is lengthy, but a special thank you to all the women and men who have modeled my website attire and other products.

My official website hat is blue in color with embroidered logo on the front and website address on the back. It includes an adjustable Velcro strap to fit all sizes. To purchase this attractive product, kindly send $19.95 to: David Martinez Boxing, 810 Coronel Street, Santa Barbara, California 93109 … and the price includes FREE shipping to any USA mailing / zip code zones.

Last, but definitely not forgotten, is my loyal fan base who I would like to recognize and thank for their support and positive input. My involvement in boxing goes back over sixty years to 1961, and my top priority is to provide honesty and credibility to for all.

As part of my fifteenth anniversary, I am providing my website team and other selected loyal fans with two gifts of appreciation – a notepad / pen set and an oval LED flashlight.

In a recent survey of faithfully loyal fans, they picked the website categories they liked best which were, in order: the history of past boxers; Ring Trivia; and the monthly Fight Calendar. The histories of past boxers are such a joy to research and write about. The trivia questions have intrigued me since my youth, as I would pick the minds of the older generation and ask questions about their era to educate myself; and to my surprise, a few that I have spoken to had actually seen some of the greats as far back as the turn of the 20th century. The fight calendar is something that I have always featured as a courtesy to my readers since the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s when I was a boxing beat writer for my local newspaper, so fight fans could choose and plan in advance when to view their desired upcoming fights.

I know you have many choices in boxing, so thank you for making one of them. It is my honor to share with you my passion for the sport, as I consider myself first a historian, and second a boxing expert.
