Pages From The Scrapbook

By David Martinez /

Recently I brought a new category to my website, which is “Pages From The Scrapbook”.

A lot of my fan base don’t know that back in the seventies, eighties, and nineties that I was a boxing beat writer for my local newspaper the Santa Barbara News Press, doing fight predictions and  also a guest reporter on local radio for all major fights.

I am delighted to bring some of these article features that I wrote for your viewing.

I learned quite a bit in the journalism field back in my younger days that have helped me to be the best I can producing  for all.

Featured here are my pre-fight and my post-fight articles on the Larry Holmes vs. Renaldo Snipes WBC heavyweight championship – dated November 1, 1981 and November 8, 1981.
