    Favorite Book: "A Clenched Fist--The Making of a Golden Gloves Champion" by Peter Wood

    "A Clenched Fist" is a fantastic, one-in-a-million type book because it explains in a very graphic & colorful way, what it's like to enter & fight in The New York City Golden Gloves. "Fist" is a real eye-opener. I loved it."
