Default Re: How would you rate Abe Attell?

Oldtimers used to rate Attell #2 after Terry McGovern as a featherweight...My memory of Abe Attell is watching the bouts on our small tv set and seeing Abe Attell in the audience rolling and ducking punches...He must have been about 60 years of age,but on tv he seemed to be in the ring once again...Never forget it as the camera would always
capture Abe in the audience...As a youngster I saw Abe Attell in his bar on Bwy about 7 or 8 blocks uptown from Dempsey's restaurant, peering through the front window....
