When I was growing up in LA one of the local TV stations (no cable then) showed wrestling on Wednesday nights from 8-10 and boxing on Thursdays from 8-10. Being a kid I liked wrestling. The wrestling promoters mother (Aileen Eaton) was the boxing promoter so there was a lot of cross promotion. So I started watching on Thursdays, seeing a variety of name fighters in tune ups and tough Mexican clubfighters who always made for an exciting match. Of course then I became aware of boxing on a national and international level, and have been hooked ever since. Despite all the sleaziness that is a part of boxing my affection for the sport has never once wavered.
