Along with Lederman being inducted in the non-participant category are Jimmy Glenn; Ray Arcel; Gil Clancey;  Steve Acunto; Arthur Mercante Sr., Bill Gallo and Nat Fleisher 우당탕탕 아이쿠 다운로드.

A lot of old friends getting their just rewards. Congratulations to all.

The event will be held at Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach, NY…Doors will open at 12:30 and more info can be had by calling 716-728-4862.***

I  write this column early, not because I played ‘favorites’ in last weeks picks, but because boxing lost a friend in Bert Randolph Sugar, who past away from lung cancer 다운로드.

Boxing lost a lot when it lost it’s best known spokesman and most of us in the media lost a good friend.

Speaking for myself, I had spent many enjoyable times with Bert, and although I haven’t seen him for about six years, he always had a warm hug and lit cigar for me phone screen sharing. (fortunately, I had stopped smoking many years earlier). I have a lot of stories about Bert and if I can locate the issue of Ring Sports that I did an interview with him in, I will publish it again on this site… 피망섯다 다운로드.

I remember the time when we were both inducted into the North West Boxing Hall of Fame in Idaho. Bert was his usual dashing self and it gave us some time to recollect on the years past.

Bert was an old friend to me, and old friendly face to boxing fans and so-much more. In this day when boxing is going the way of the Great Auk, we really need more Bert Sugars to get by.

Rest in peace my old friend. May the good Lord keep you in his care until we meet again.

Glove 2 Glove:

Prayers requested for the soul of Bert Sugar, 74 and top trainer Jerry “Ace” Miller.
