Default KO Magazine

So sad it no longer exists, KO was probably my favorite of the mags, even though I always knew Ring was usually of a higher quality, I loved KO magazine and all the features. That magazine and their sister magazines WERE boxing to me. Anyone remember how awesome that magazine was? I wish somebody could bring it back. How I miss the days when the new KO came out.

We've already discussed this to an extent.

I kid you not, those magazines are the first things I think of when I remember being a kid.

Oh, well I'm always ready to talk more about the magazines, in this case KO. The great covers, the stories, the cool features, the anticipation of a new issue. The year end awards issue! Man, those were the days and I thought they'd never end. One of my favorite things about the IBHOF induction weekend is the boxing memorabilia show where you can buy back issues of KO and other magazines for like a buck each.

The year-end awards was hard to top...except for when they had the lb4lb best fighter poll. A few experts would list their top ten, and then reason why they picked their #1. Then they'd tabulate the lists and come up with the conscensus choice.

That was back when lb4lb wasn't such a constant talking point...which made it all the more special.

I model my boxing blog, KO Digest, after what I liked most about the magazine coverage of the sport back in the day and I will be doing very similar year end awards in December and also the P4P listing, so if any of you experts want to contribute, I'd love to post your lists and simulate what KO did, with points assigned etc and come up with a consensus top p4p fighter and the rest of the top 10.

Sounds good mate, I'll see if I can find that blog....... I think I still have 1 or 2 KO magazines somewhere so I'll try and find them too. We may find some good stuff in them, I had one with a good article on Jeff Fenech.

I had two ldifferent letters to the editor published in KO magazine.

Both were in the beginning of 1990. Pretty damn exciting when I got that first issue and saw it!

Scan and post! What issues? What was the topic?

And hey McGoorty, if you look closely at my blog, you'll see I even mention you in there.

I only remember details about the first one...It was at the very beginning of 1990, and had Evander Holyfield vs Alex Stewart I on the cover.

I wrote a letter covering Julian Jackson's power (he had been a recent centerfold), and a recent (at the time) claim by Jeff Ryan that Jeff Fenech was a highly overrated fighter about to get slaughtered- which I went off on a bit.

My recollection of the other one is hazier, but it covered how certain fighters were never seen on network TV who should have been. I mostly focused on how Jorge Paez had a contract on NBC, while the highly superirr Antonio Esparragoza had never been, but needed to be, on network television.
