    Does anyone know if Carlos Ortiz still lives in or around New York City? The reason I ask is that I will be in New York next month and have been wanting to interview him for some time if he's able to do it. I'd like to see if someone here has a connection for him. I asked Anson Wainwright of The Ring, he did a interview with him a couple of years back but that was in Canastota at the IBHOF.

    I can't help you out since I have none of that information. I just wanted to say I'd love to read that interview if you get it. Ortiz is one of my favorites to learn about.

    Me too. I’d suggest calling the IBHOF and see if they could help put you in touch with him ... or maybe give him your number at least.

    I sent them a message. I’ll probably call them tomorrow.

    Good luck. And if you are able to track him down and interview him, please post a link so we can find it!

    One of the more underappreciated great fighters.

    Lee Groves pointed me in the direction of Randy Commisioner Gordon. He said he arranges a lot of the IBHOF stuff and will definitely know so I am just waiting on him getting back to me.

    Are there any questions people in this thread would like me to ask (if I get the interview)?

    Also will probably be doing a Q & W with Ruben Olivares in a few days. Any questions people may have for him?
