imagesTHIS IS A NEW PAGE ABOUT YESTERYEAR BOXING /BOXERS.

SO LETS START WITH THE DEATH OF PERNELL (Sweet Pea) WHITAKER IN A CAR ACCIDENT.  I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT ICONIC RING MAGAZINE COVER, WITH THE GOLD  MEDALIST,PERNALL WHITTAKER, EVANDER HOLYFIELD, MELDRICK TAYLOR, MARK BRELAND, AND HENRY TILLMAN  FROM THE 1984 OLYMPIC GAMES FROM LOS ANGELES.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF GREAT AMERICAN OLYMPIC BOXERS!! ALL WENT ON TO BE WORLD CHAMPION EXCEPT TILLMAN (Mike Tyson was kept out of olympics by Tillman). WHITAKER WAS ALWAYS GREAT TO WATCH .    SEEMS TO BE A END OF A ERA.
