Fight Night

The big Italian(Sicilian) heavyweight I manage is on deck for another bout. He is fighting tomorrow evening at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. This venue is a few miles north of New London and just above  the New England coast so artfully featured in the Daily Prep. I tend to doubt I will bump into in hand... screaming at a fighter to "keep your hands up."
In this photo your faithful writer is modeling the custom corner-men's jackets I had  made for my team. It is an all cotton affair...a shawl collar cardigan hearkening back to old school trainers and cut- men like one sees in Scorcese's "Raging Bull." I am not certain whether I have displayed this photo before but what the Hell.
Tomorrow morning I will head North to be at the casino in plenty of time for some time to talk to my fighter and then meet up with the Lehigh boys to have a few drinks before the matches begin. Here's hoping for a KO'd opponent in the early going...another step on the road to Vegas and the big money TV fight for a Championship belt.
