In the summer of 1955 Connie and I as newlyweds were strolling down Whittier Blvd in East L.A. when we came upon a crowd of some 20 people that were screaming and yelling on the sidewalk in front of an appliance store. We walked up to see what all the commotion was about, well the crowd was watching the first Carmen Basilio/Tony DeMarco fight on a TV through the store's big window. Soon Connie and I were screaming and yelling too....Ah! The '50s on a Friday night!!
