Default R.I.P. - George Benton

I just received this from John DiSanto:

All,
George Benton died this morning, September 19, 2011 at 3:40 AM, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in North Philly. He had been in the hospital the past few weeks battling pneumonia, although I am not certain of the official cause of death. No funeral arrangements have been made yet, but I will keep you posted once I hear.

Benton was a great fighter, trainer, and one of the true legends of Philadelphia boxing. He will be greatly missed.

Below is a link to my obituary of Benton, which was run on PhillyBoxngHistory.com this morning.

Thank you,
John DiSanto

I totally agree with your p4p rankings, Pac is definitely above Floyd. - Neutral

The most underrated trainer of the modern era, he developed Whitaker and Holyfield, my two favorite fighters growing up and was a bad apple in the ring.
