I saw the true "greatest" before he turned pro and after he retired. and to see him at the end of the film pudgy and with dementia is so sad for me...What nature gives it destroys.
For me as a boy to see Robinson ringside in his welterweight prime, and recalling those fights still give me goosebumps...

I was ringside at the Bell fight with my dad, Doug. Think I posted all about the bout on your site.

No Dougie, I was not at the Tommy Bell bout, but was well aware of it ...
Since Hurricane Sandy I'm still displaced until my Insurance company
hopefully takes care of the problem and i can rebuild what nature destroyed...As long as I'm dry...A Merry Christmas to you and yours Doug...
