This being my initial blog let me introduce myself. My name is Al Iannacone Sr. I am originally from Paterson, New Jersey – a fight town. I retired from the Navy and work for the Department of the Navy. I am also a boxing fan for 42 years and boxing historian having watched thousands of fights, read extensively and boxed in smokers as young man in the Navy. The idea for writing this blog was Chris Gordon’s, owner and proprietor of Headstrong Boxing Gym in Jacksonville at 929 12 Avenue. Thanks Chris for all you do for boxing. We need more men like you.
