Boone Kirkman a great white hope, good looking, blue collar fighter with a great record would have made a huge event at the box office in Seattle. Kirkman was a big draw packing out the Coliseum many times.

A crowd of 11,306 showed up in the summer of 1967 for his first important bout against Eddie Machen. Another 13,711
saw him beat Doug Jones a few months later and avenge his first pro defeat. He had 10,072 ringside when he defeated Jimmy
Ellis and 11,039 when he lost to Ken Norton a year later.
