The Best in Northwest Boxing Coverage
Featuring Award Winning Writing and Photographs by Mike Blair and Ricardo Ibarra

email: Mike Blair or Ricardo Ibarra

Read the Review, then Read the Book. Brian D'Ambrosio has written an outstanding biography of Marvin Camel a Native American workd Champion from Montana. This book is a must read for all fans of boxing as well as fans of a story about a man who proves that hard work and dedication can lead to success.

Sad news from the world of boxing as one of th great old time boxing minds is gone. Bennie Georgino was best known to Northwest fight fans as the man that promoted boxing at The Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester. He gave a number of local fighters a chance to show their skill in front of crowds that truly appreciated the sport. Everyone fought for Bennie not simply because that is what he expected, but because they respected Bennie, and the fighter knew that being competitive could mean returning on a later card. He treated everyone with kindness and respect whether a fighter, a manager, or even just some guy that sat ringside taking photos and later writing a story. People like Bennie don't come around too often. Read more from The Sweet Science.
