In this edition of “Pages From The Scrapbook” features my letter to the sports editor of the Santa Barbara (California) News Press – dated January 6, 1999 – regarding the passing of Jerry Quarry.
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 and commentary. 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.
