Re: Willie Classen 'Forgotten Warrior'
In early November,
While the Madison Square Garden matchmakers, Gil Clancy and Assistant Jack Brami
differ on offering Wiilie Classen the bout against Wilford Scypion, Classen's
manager Marco Minuto is pushing for the match.
Gil Clancy, against Jack Brami's recommendation, offers Minuto a measly $1000 for the
10-Round bout. Minuto holds out for more money. His claim, despite 2 bad
knock-out losses in a row, is that Willie Classen is a name fighter, and desrves
a larger fight purse.
Later, Jack Brami gets involved, and asks Minuto, 'just how much do you think a
figher with 2 straight knock-out losses is worth'. Minuto still holds out for more
money, asking for $2500 for a 'co-main event bout' in Madison Square Garden is not
asking for much he states.
