I really, really mean it.

A lesser-known fact is that Gavilan's early nickname was "The Gavel-Man", which spoke of his knockout power in both fists, described as hammer-like... It evolved into "Kid Gavilan" when he started getting bigger fights, per his management.

The only Gavilan footage I have is what they show on Champions Forever Latin Champions, since then ive watched whatever footage you can find of Kid...The dude didnt play!!!. He's a brilliant boxer with underated power..

Espn classic will show a kid gavilan fight once in a blue.
I wish i had their archives. I always felt a lot of old
school fighters had more to fight for, different
times life was tougher less technology etc.
Interesting fact I picked up from ringside.
After winning the gold, SRL was working in
produce, Dundee convinced him he had the stuff for the
pros. Can you imagine that.
