Fight Films

If you have not seen this movie.....please do so. This classic Bogart vehicle also features Rod Steiger and boxers  Jersey Joe Walcott and Max Baer. It is a film which peels back the layers of the business of boxing. Much of the exposed dirt is no longer extant....and the game is better off.

Saturday's Results

Heavyweight prospect Joey Cusumano (8-1, 6 KOs) opened the show in dramatic fashion, by dropping Randy Easton (2-4-1, 2 KOs) twice, en-route to a one sided second round knockout. Cusumano took control early in the second with a big right hand which forced Easton to cover. With Easton fighting tentatively, Cusumano landed a right hand up top, but Easton tripped and fell into the ropes. Referee Henry Grant ruled it a knockdown. Easton was not hurt, but it wouldn’t matter as Cusumano sent him the canvas for the ten count at 2:36 from a devastating left hook underneath to finish the show.

The Weigh -In

The weigh in for my heavyweight's bout tomorrow evening is concluded. Now he will eat and rest before stepping through the ropes in the Grand Ballroom of Bally's casino.
This sportsman will be in the locker room before the fight and at ringside when the bell rings. If you happen to be there...say "Yo." I'll buy ya a beer.
