Re: giardello vs bobby watts and georgie benton
I read a memorial article on Giardello in Ring Magazine.
The writer (Steve Farhood I think) recalled smoking a cigarette with Giardello outside a church at some funeral service for an old Philly boxing journalist. Benton (who was ill and walking with a cane) came limping out of the church assisted by two young men.
Apparently Giardello turned to Farhood and said 'I'd whip him now' nodding in Benton's direction. That had me cracking up. Georgie was for rea, both as a fighter and a trainer.
