This edition of “Pages From The Scrapbook” features my article titled “The Time is Now for Reunification” – dated April 23, 1998 – regarding the need in boxing for single champions in every division, especially heavyweight.
As we know it today, boxing has certainly not bought into that concept due to promoters and the various governing organizations solely controlling their own champions.
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.
