Famed boxing writer Burt Sugar died today at the age of 75. I know next to nothing about him, except that he was probably one of the most well known boxing writers around.
I feel bad for the boxing profession. I know Sugar worked hard as a boxing writer to continue to bring relevance to the sport, but it really has ceased to be relevant for a long time now. The days of boxing being a huge draw with the likes of Ali-Frazier appear to be over. I couldn't even tell you who the heavyweight champion is. I'm sure there are people who legitimately think Rocky Balboa was a former champion.
Anyway, I'm sad that Sugar passed, boxing sure could have used him to keep the torch burning. I love this card, by the way. It sure is pretty awesome, I'm glad I have it.
