Re: I am a boxing manager: if you have questions about the boxing biz, ask!
With the recent ring tragedy in Mexico of Frankie Leal RIP, he was a good kid, I got to know him when he took the "0" from my guy,in Oklahoma.
Scrap mentioning Mickey Duff, brought to mind a fighter he had Johnny Owen, fighting Lupe Pintor for the bantamwt title. I can still see the the huge banner Owen came in with, of a skeleton in fighting pose. Owen was so skinny, almost like a skeleton, he was no match for Pintor. I was with Mickey, Don Chargin and Alex Wallau. Mickey told me to go at the end of the round, I believe the 6th, he told me to tell the cornerman to stop the fight. I was about to, when Mickey changed his mind and said, "nevermind I don't want to second guess the corner." Leal, was brutally ko's by Gradavich and taken out in a stretcher in San Antonio, somebody should have said something, whether it is second guessing or not they both paid with their lives.
