Jim Amato – Health Update


By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

As many of you know, one of boxing’s outstanding historians and sports collectors, who is also a writer for this website since 2008, Jim “Jimbo” Amato, has recently dealt with some very serious health issues.

I want to kindly thank Jerry Fitch for providing all of us with the latest information on Jim.

On October 20, 2018, Jim was released from the hospital in Cleveland after successful surgery.  He is now residing at a nursing facility near his home in Ashland, Ohio.  Jim will be there to facilitate his rehabilitation and healing.

All of us in Jim’s circle of friends and in the boxing world are continuing our most sincere prayers for his comfort and for a speedy recovery to good health – thank you and thanks be to God!
