Where am I? Home Columns Jerry Glick
 
 

Based in NYC, Jerry Glick has been a fan of boxing since 1959 (50 years!).  First he read a boxing magazine that peaked his interest. But after watching Ingemar Johansson KO Floyd Patterson to win the heavyweight title Mr. Glick was hooked on the sport.  After years of drawing and painting scenes and portraits, often with a boxing theme or subject, he tried writing on the advice of renowned boxing authority, Jack Hirsch, who, for a while, was his mentor in the art of covering boxing.  Mr. Glick started out writing for Ringsports Magazine and now a decade later Mr. Glick writes for Boxing Digest Magazine, and, of course, SecondsOut.Com where his artwork and humor can be seen by clicking on the box marked Punchline.

Don’t Boo Rigondeaux

Jerry Glick reporting from ringside: The fight was a purist’s delight; Guillermo Rigondeaux, the Cuban exile with an astounding 400 fight amateur career with two Olympic Gold Medals and enough medals won in countless other tourneys to stock a bank vault, put on a display of boxing skills that should be used as a how to box lesson for all young people looking to try the ring.
