The Toughest Guy In Boxing

나팔바지

By Young Bob Sproggins

On July 19, 1990 at the Kingdome in Seattle, Washington, Craig “Gator” Bodzianokski from Chicago, Illinois stepped into the ring to challenge the reigning and defending WBA Cruiserweight Champion of the World, Robert Daniels, from Miami, Florida. After 12 rounds of action it went to the judges’ scorecards where Daniels won a unanimous decision and retained his Title 다운로드.

However, there was something so unique about this fight that never before or since, in the history of boxing, has this situation been repeated. Bodzianowski had only one leg 다운로드!

Boxing’s Unsung Heroes

By Steve Corbo

(Part #1 of 2 )

Nice to see English boxer Martin Murray get some favorable publicity recently, in an article by Ted Sares 연속지적도 다운로드. Murray, previously featured on www.dmboxing.com is a real Pro 다운로드. What a career this guy has. His record stands at 39-6-1. In 46 pro fights he was stopped only once, by Triple G, in 2015, for G’s WBA, IBO & WBC Middleweight Titles.  He dropped decisions against Sergio Martinez for the WBC World Middleweight Title, dropped a split decision to Arthur Abraham, in Germany, for the WBO World Super Middleweight Title and fought Felix Sturm to a highly controversial Draw, in Germany, with Sturm’s WBA Super World Middleweight Title on the line 5인의 탐정가 다운로드. He also lost a decision to Billy Joe Saunders, on December 04, 2020 in a bout for the WBO Super Middleweight Title. That’s five (5) shots at a world title and along the way he captured the WBA Interim World Middleweight Title java 첨부 파일 일괄. Hope I got all the alphabets right… but It doesn’t matter. This kid Murray can fight! 

Unfortunately none of his fights have been on US soil 다운로드. For years Murray had been denied a US Visa, due to legal problems. I heard he finally was able to get things straightened out but, as of this date, he has yet to set foot in a US Ring. Perhaps he never will. The losers here have been the US fight fans, who never really got a chance to know Murray or see him fight in person. I sure wish this guy would have come up in Southern California!

I will always remember this fight because I was there, at ringside, close enough to reach out and touch Cleveland Denny. In the late 1970’s my friend Johnny Lira was the USBA Lightweight Champion and one of world’s top rated lightweights 7공주 mp3 다운로드. In ’79 he lost in his bid to capture the WBA World Lightweight Title.

A year later, Ring Magazine had him rated #5 in the world , he was looking to get back into the mix and get another shot at the title. Johnny was going to fight Gaetan Hart on the undercard of Sugar Ray Leonard vs Roberto Duran, up in Montreal. The bout was scheduled for June 20,1980. But they weren’t able to make the fight and Cleveland Denny wound up in the ring facing Hart, instead of Lira. Johnny, myself and Mauro DiFiore decided to go up to Montreal anyway and see the show. What a show it was, taking place at the Olympic Stadium and in the same city where just four years earlier Sugar Ray Leonard won a Gold Medal in the 1976 Olympics. Johnny was on top of his game so we were with Angelo Dundee, Wilfredo Benitez, media guys like the dean of all boxing historians Hank Kaplan, etc. We were surrounded by boxing royalty. We had no tickets, but somebody hooked us up and we got in on some TV/Radio Press Passes! We had no assigned seats! I ended up sitting in Leonard’s corner, on a folding chair I picked up from someplace, next to Joe Frazier. We talked about his son Marvis, who was an amateur at the time, and had just won the National’s.
