The following year, I began attending the wrestling and boxing matches at the historic Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles with my uncle. Watching these events in person and “in living color” was such a treat for a young kid; these are incredible memories which I will never forget 드래곤 길들이기2 다운로드.

I was also interviewed on radio and TV, and wrote many article pieces as a boxing beat writer in the seventies, eighties, and nineties for my local newspaper, The Santa Barbara News Press.
Serving on the Board of Directors and as boxing historian with the World Boxing Hall of Fame from 1997 to 2007 certainly was a satisfying experience as well as an honor.
In July 2007, I established my own website, dmboxing.com which has absolutely been a delight to offer my personal look at the “sweet science” for many to enjoy.
I would like to say thank you to the many who have helped me and who have contributed to the success of the website which has now published 1,778 articles and features world-wide.
Along the way, I have met some truly genuine and positive boxing people that have become my friends; these relationships are special to me.
I know there are many choices out there in boxing – the support I have received has made it my pleasure to produce this website. Thank you everybody! In closing, I would like to share a few photos from the dmboxing.com collection.
