Oy Vay are you going to hear it today…As I sit out on my balcony overlooking the Biscayne Bay with our beautiful 90 degree weather today, I am in a reminiscing mood of days gone by. A time when our beloved sport of boxing had magical fighters and they fought each other to determine who was the best. Today, we have some great ones, but dammit they refuse to fight each other! You are not the best of your era if you don’t… Well, my beloved Sadie is out shopping (What’s Jew, I mean new?) So with her out with the Yenta Club, let me get to this column RSR readers…
Roman Gonzalez – Carlos Cuadras… Gentlemen, I salute you! Fight of the Year so far and Gonzalez shows what the definition of a fighter who wants to win. Cuadras is a real champion even if he lost.
Canelo Alvarez… My dear friend Alexis Arguello and the late Carlos Monzon are not happy with your games. They fought everyone. What’s your excuse? Cut the crap!
Jimmy Stewart… Hollywood Royalty! An American Treasure. Here are my top five Stewart movies.
5. Winchester 73
4. Anatomy Of A Murder
2. Rear Window
1. It’s A Wonderful Life
My Pal Al (“Bad” Brad’s Father)
As the years go by and it’s 18 so far, I will never get over the loss of my Pal Al. He was so beloved by so many and gave so much to his friends and loved ones. You should have seen us at countless closed circuit fights back in the day. But the kicker was sitting ringside as Bradley fought. Al loved Bradley more than words could describe. To this day, the few that remain from our crew, always say the same thing. Bradley was Alvin’s world. End of story!
The Chutzpah Award… The Chutzpah Award Posthumously goes to Allen Funt from Candid Camera fame. Shows like this, with a real host, who loved what he did and it came across with his interactions with the people they had on, will never be matched in these day of Reality CRAP TV.Contact the Feature Writers
