Here is our NABF Champ Karl Dargon, WBC Champ Alicia Ashley and a young friend at Childrens National Health System in Washington, DC. This wonderful, visitation program was shared with us by Hope for Henry Foundation. Hope for Henry was inspired by young Henry Strongin who asked his parents for boxing gloves and a heavy bag in between his treatments. Karl was a KO! He is a spokeperson for the sport we can be proud of.
NABF Super middleweight Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (30-0, 24 KOs) who's ranked at number two by the WBC, stopped resilient veteran Fulgencio Zuniga (27-10, 24 KOs) in round eight, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Ramirez who's filled out considerably and looks enormous for a super middleweight, was sharp and precise, winning every round before getting the stoppage.
Boyd Melson was a Captain at West Point, an award winning amateur boxer, who turned pro to give his entire purse to research on spinal cord injuries. He is currently working with the Keck Center and recently, with Paul Williams, in hopes of effecting a cure for paralysis. Here is the lovely note Duane Ford wrote for Boyd's Team Fight to Walk's Fund Raier.
The dictionary defines “Character” as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. Personally, I like to gauge the character of an individual on how the individual treats people they really do not need.
This type of character will continue to affect others to pay this forward and help all of us build our own character in loving our neighbor as ourselves.
