    Tell me what cha got!
    What kind of things do you have collecting dust at your house?

    Ali once had a mustache but he had to shave it off just before a fight.
    He was told it made too big a target.
    (I saw it live on TV back in the 1970s)
    I wonder if anybody collected that mustache when he was done.

    Do any of you have any busted boxing gloves from a famous fighter?
    I saw a set of autographed gloves on ebay going for more than I would ever pay.

    I am sure there are a lot of worn out boxing shoes laying around somewhere. Then there are the sweaty towels that stink, trunks with worn out elastic waist bands, some smelly socks; or how about an old printed “T-Shirt” from 20 to 30 years ago?
    Don’t forget your Jock Strap!

    I saw a guy with a tiny little set of gold boxing gloves on his keyring: “Once!” I wonder if those tiny gloves still get handed out when a person actually wins the golden gloves.

    What happens to all those championship belts long after that Boxer has died? Have you ever seen one at a Hard Rock Café?

    So tell me; what’s in your collection???

    The reason you don't know is because you have never been there.
    You can even look up the hard rock cafe on the internet, and see all the pretty pictures for yourself.
    Think about it! You won't even have to move your lips when you read.
    An intelligent person doesn't use profanity because they are smart enough to think of other ways to speak without it.

    I have the movie camera that filmed all of Greb’s fights. Had to chuck the footage to make room for more junk in my garage.

    I am in Cartegena, Colombia and Cervantes grew up not far from here and I went into this Restaurant/Bar that had traditional Champeta dancing and live music... And there were all these old school framed pics of Kid Pambelé all over the place, so cool. Hopefully I can track one down before I leave
