The first time I became aware of boxing was through my father who was an avid Joe Louis fan. I was indifferent to the 'sweet science' until Floyd Patterson became the youngest man to win the heavyweight title. I was first intrigued, then became a fan as a result of his epic trilogy with Ingemar Johansson. When "Cassius Clay" burst upon the scene, I became an avid fan myself.

Meanwhile, names like Isidro Martinez, Julio Ruiz, Hector Hicks, Humberto Trottman, Jorge Quintero, Eloy Henry, Jesus Santamaria, Justiniano Aguilar, Benjamin Lewis, Ismael Laguna,* etc. were featured at the boxing venues of Panama.



*Second Panamanian to become world champion (first was Panama Al Brown in 1923, who was also the first Latin American to become world champion).
