Default Re: Chi town boxing?

Lack of gyms would be my guess. In 1970's and 1980's there were still a lot of guys coming out of Chicago. There was an Italian lightweight contender, can't remember name, I think he became trainer after he retired. (Johnny Lara?) More gyms =more fighters. Imagine if Manny Strwerd never opened Kronk
