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 dmboxing.com for all.
Featured here is my pre-fight article on the Alexis Arguello vs. James Busceme, WBC lightweight championship and the Michael Spinks vs. Mustapha Wasaja, WBA light heavyweight championship and the Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Bruce Finch, WBC/WBA welterweight championship – dated February 13, 1982.
