    I appreciate that. I know if I think about it, after the top few my order could change.

    Yaqui is personal. In the late seventies and early eighties he’d bring teams of amateur kids from Stockton to box our kids on the coast. Maybe he’s still active in youth boxing. I don’t know. But that’s when I was training and involved with local boxing and got to meet him.

    I was only thinking of the amount of guts he carried into the ring every night, but that is cool as well.
