Earnie Shavers (R.I.P.)

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

With the recent passing of top rated heavyweight Earnie Shavers on September 1, 2022, the day after his 78th birthday, I am sharing an article that my good friend Jim Amato (R.I.P.) wrote on Shavers which was published on February 11, 2009 on www.dmboxing.com 다운로드. Also included are a few personal photos of Shavers, and my autographed Sports Illustrated magazine covers; the S.I. articles regard his legendary championship fights with Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes … may Mr 윈도우10 msdn 다운로드. Earnie Shavers rest peacefully in heaven with the Lord!

*** FLASHBACK *** By Jim Amato / Senior Boxing Writer

It was to be the last time the incomparable Muhammad Ali would ever successfully defend the heavyweight championship 맥북 엑셀 2010. It would be held in boxing’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. It would also feature Ohio’s most popular heavyweight of the last quarter century, Earnie Shavers 클래시로얄 무료 다운로드.

The “Acorn” as Ali had dubbed Shavers would be a prohibitive underdog. He was accorded a puncher’s chance at best against the aging but still crafty king of the heavyweights 채널 j 다운로드. What transpired the night of September 29, 1977 established Earnie as a legitimate contender and forecast the soon to be demise of “The Greatest”.

*** FLASHBACK *** This article feature was originally published on www.dmboxing.com on August 19, 2012

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

With the 2012 Olympic Games now behind us, let me congratulate our country’s first gold medal winner Claressa Shields, and also bronze medal winner Marlen Esparza 다운로드. Their performances were nothing less than outstanding.

As I watched, in what little there was for my standards, the boxing competition, I was displeased with the judging and the officiating.  Olympic scoring is a computerized count of punches thrown, which is confusing because if you land a couple of more jabs than your opponent but are rocked yourself by a few more damaging punches you win the round 다운로드. So is this fencing with gloves?

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

This edition of “Pages From The Scrapbook” features an event that took place in May of 1974 in my hometown of Santa Barbara, California 인공지능 다운로드. These newspaper clippings are self explanatory when you follow them in order.

Many of my readers today don’t know that back in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, I was a boxing beat freelance writer for the Santa Barbara News Press, and these articles are what prompted the sports editor, Dave Kohl, to request my services and bring me in as their boxing man 다운로드.

As it turned out, this was certainly a wonderful blessing during that time of my young life, as I experienced the whole concept of journalism 엔트리 코딩 다운로드. It was that experience which guided me to be the best I could be in the production of my www.dmboxing website today.

Arthur Mercante, Sr.

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

In my over sixty years of involvement in boxing, since 1961, I have truly been blessed to meet an array of boxers and other related members of the boxing circuit 왕은 사랑한다 다운로드. There are many that stand out, but let me single out one: Hall of Fame referee Arthur Mercante.

I met Mercante twenty years ago during my time as a Board of Directors member and Boxing Historian for the World Boxing Hall of Fame 전참시 다운로드. Arthur was such a gentleman … he was nothing less than a class act and truly respected at the highest level.

Mercante was born on January 20, 1920, in Brockton, Massachusetts, before later moving to New York at the age of seven 다운로드.

At the age of sixteen, he began boxing as an amateur and made it, as a welterweight, to the Golden Gloves finals in 1938. After graduating from New York University in 1942, he served four years in the Navy under former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney as a training and physical rehabilitation instructor, with one of his assignments to referee service bouts 다운로드.

After serving in the Navy, he refereed many amateur and college matches. He became a varsity boxing coach at the United States Merchant Marine Academy radiant 무료 프로그램.

James Figg

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

As I take you back in time, James Figg, in my estimation, was the first recognized heavyweight boxing champion and was the first to teach and promote boxing at a high level 자동차 주차 다운로드.

Born in 1695, in Thame, Oxfordshire, England, Figg was also an expert swordsman and fought with weapons including swords, quarterstaffs, and cudgels before attaining stardom in his bare knuckle championship boxing reign 다운로드.

By 1719, Figg defeated all challengers; and as those early years passed, he defeated top opponents Timothy Buck, Tom Stokes, Bill Flanders, and Chris Clarkson 다운로드. He also had a string of epic bouts with Edward Sutton, inclulding one in 1725 when Figg suffered his only career defeat.

Figg established a boxing academy in London which is now known as the Tottenham Court Road 다운로드. There he taught boxing skills and the combative techniques in using weapons.

Figg established his own amphitheatre in Oxford Road, a London arena which staged boxing matches 국문 이력서 양식. There he popularized sparring as public entertainment and also offered fencing exhibitions.

Figg also made public appearances at London’s Southwark Fair, Hyde Park, and other outdoor venues where he would take on all comers.

Carlos Ortiz (R.I.P.)


David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

On June 13, 2022 the boxing world lost a great champion 스파크 다운로드. Carlos Ortiz passed away at the age of 85. He was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on September 9, 1936.

Ortiz began his outstanding professional career in 1955 with a first round knockout over Harry Bell in New York 다운로드.

He suffered his first loss losing to Johnny Busso via 10 round split decision on June 27, 1958. Ortiz was 21 years old and held an undefeated ring record of 26-0 entering that bout 안드로이드 한영사전 다운로드. Three months later in September, Ortiz reversed his loss with a convincing 10 round decision win. Both Busso fights were held at Madison Square Garden, New York 다운로드.

After posting a ring record of 29 wins, 2 losses, and one no-decision, Ortiz met Kenny Lane for the vacant junior welterweight / super lightweight title in New York on June 12, 1959 다운로드. Lane had given Ortiz a 10 round loss prior, on December 31, 1958, but this time Ortiz would win by knockout after two rounds to become the second Puerto Rican world champion since Sixto Escobar did it more than thirty years before.

In 1960, Ortiz defended his 140 pound title twice, knocking out Battling Torres and taking a 15 round decision over Duilio Loi. Also in 1960, Ortiz and Loi met in a rematch and Ortiz lost a 15 round decision. Ortiz and Loi fought their rubber match on May 10, 1961, with Loi winning a 15 round decision.

In 1962, Ortiz moved down in weight to lightweight and challenged champion Joe Brown. On April 21, Ortiz won a 15 round decision over Brown to win his second world title, and I remember it well, watching the fight on TV with my father on that Saturday evening.

(Summer 2022 Edition)

It is truly a joy to announce that on July 15th this month www.dmboxing.com officially celebrates a milestone … fifteen years online 다운로드.

The website started back is 2007 and since then I have published 1,894 articles and features world-wide 리턴1979.

It’s absolutely a delight to bring you boxing, as I have produced this site to be the best that I can provide.

Along the way, I have been truly blessed to become acquainted with a wonderful array of fans, with some becoming the closest of friends 다운로드.

I am also grateful to have a special core group of people that have enhanced the success of the website 다운로드. First off is John Boitnott, who had the vision to believe in me and was the first webmaster. After serving a trial period learning the mechanics of a website, I am now a proud producer 갓오브곡괭이 3d.

There are others in that group who have certainly contributed to the continuing success, and I’ll start with a trio of individuals that are no longer with us (R.I.P.) – may their souls rest peacefully in heaven – Rusty Rubin, Harold Lederman, and Jim Amato. These three have provided a wealth of boxing knowledge to the website.

Rusty was my first writer and featured his monthly column, “In Rusty’s Corner”, and also “Glove2Glove” which offered prayers for the sick, needy, and deceased.

Harold provided his own video shorts called “Hey Harold!” which previewed upcoming major fights to be shown on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Jim was nothing less than brilliant with featured stories on boxers of the past and present. His expertise as a true boxing historian was priceless.
