Last, but not least, are you … my loyal fan support. I know you have many choices in boxing and thank you, everyone, for making just one of them.

My boxing background goes back to 1961. I have a short capsule BIO that can be viewed on the site menu section. It is my complete honor to serve and give my historical and boxing background to everyone.

My theme has always been honesty and credibility in the producing of this website. I also appreciate the comments and personal mail that I receive, with my respect of all opinions and views.

Here’s sharing five questions of interest that often surface directly to me, and in not any particular order, with my honest sincerest answers:

*** (2) When did you visit Jack Dempsey’s home museum in Manassa, Colorado?

ANSWER: August 1975

ANSWER: Harold Johnson, April 20, 1964, Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

*** (4) What do you consider your greatest resource of education to be a great historian of boxing?

ANSWER: In my younger days talking and interviewing the older generation that lived in era’s before I was born; their history is priceless.
