In The Ring, February 1962, page 59, it was reported that Frankie Carbo, Blinky Palermo, Joe Sica, and Louis Dragna were sentenced to jail terms for extortion, in which they muscled in on Jordan's contract. Carbo received 25 years, Sica 20 years, Palermo 15 years, and Dragna 5 years. The sentences were imposed by Judge George Boldt, who also fined the four men $10,000 each. Palermo was let out on $100,000 bail, "pending a hearing by the U.S. Court of Appeals."


Jordan died in a San Pedro, California, nursing home. Jordan had been in a coma since September 1996 when he was assaulted and robbed in a Los Angeles parking lot.

“Hell!! He Ain’t Dead, he’s asleep”


Circa 1980 there was a rumor going around the boxing gyms in Southern California that I had died. John Bayrooty, boxing writer for the now defunct Los Angeles Herald-Examiner even ran a piece on the paper “Frank Baltazar, father of boxers Frankie and Tony Baltazar has died” etc. etc.


It all started as far as I know with the late Johnny Cabrera (matchmaker for Don Fraser) Johnny told somebody that I had died from kidney failure. From there the rumor spread.


People started calling the house asking about funeral services. Connie or whoever answered the phone would tell the callers that I was not dead.


My friend Dub Huntley called, and this he told me later. He didn’t want to ask about services, so when Connie answered the phone he asked her if I was home, Connie told him that yes I was home but that I was asleep, Dud told her not to wake me up, that he would call later.


Dub got on the phone and called as many people as he could and told them “Hell! He ain’t dead, he’s asleep”!!


When Dub called me I asked him how the rumor had gotten started, he said that as far as he knew it had started with Johnny Cabrera. I then called Johnny and when he answered I said “Johnny this is Frank Baltazar” he then, in a low voice, asked me “Frank, where are you calling me from?” “From hell”!! I replied. I hope he was sitting down!!...
