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.
