In this edition of “Pages From The Scrapbook” is a featured column that ran on August 25, 1982. It was written by Dave Kohl, Sports Editor of the Santa Barbara, California, News Press on my behalf saying THANK YOU to a fan that sent me the original June 13, 1938 issue of Liberty Magazine which featured Joe Louis and Max Schmeling.
The magazine itself is in great shape, but, unfortunately, the red lettering on the cover has faded quite a bit through the years.
Many of my current fan base don’t know that back in the seventies, eighties, and nineties, I was a boxing beat writer for my local newspaper, the Santa Barbara News Press, doing fight predictions. I also was a frequent guest commentator on local radio for all major fights.
I learned quite a bit about the journalism field in those earlier years that has truly helped me to be the best I can be in producing dmboxing.com today.
I am delighted to bring back some of these old articles for viewing.
