I was born in Queens NY, but currently reside in Hackensack NJ. Became a diehard boxing fan in the 1980’s watching Sugar Ray Leonard and Mike Tyson.

I’ve enjoyed watching and talking about sports for as long as I can remember. In late 2012 I began to pursue a sports writing career with the Harlem Times. Within a few months I was covering events such as the Big East Tournament and the Adrien Broner vs. Paulie Malignaggi fight at the Barclays Center.

Love boxing because of the Sweet Science, the history of great champions, and knowing at any moment a fight can be over with one punch.

Since the build up to their fight in May of 2007, there has been bad blood between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
While fighters in their late 30s and early 40s have found some success in a few of the heavier divisions, boxing has not been kind to welterweights and junior middleweights over the last 20 plus years.
