A visit to the Boxing Hall of Fame

I hied myself to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota this past Saturday (June 9) to have a look at the festivities, and I had a jolly time, even if I didn’t get to see all the celebrities I had hoped to see.

I did get a look at Sugar Ray Leonard, who, at the age of 56, seemed hardly to have aged at all, and that was satisfaction enough. I also took a few photos, which you can view by clicking HERE.

Inducted into the hall were boxers Thomas “Hitman” Hearns and Mark “Too Sharp” Johnson, ring announcer Michael Buffer, trainer Freddie Roach, broadcaster Al Bernstein and journalist Michael Katz.
