    Oh, I love to watch this fight. How excellent were both these guys? These are the kind of fighters Mike Silver writes about in his book. Billy Graham was an artist and Gavilan at his best was second only to Robinson in the 40’s. It’s not just nostalgia to recognize how good these guys are.
    Thanks for posting
