(OCT 18) It's boxing's basic story, the on-going interaction between the fighter and the promoter. It's been done in novels, movies and countless magazine and newspaper stories. I've done the story a couple of times and every time I did, there was always a "good guy" and a "bad guy". In truth, it was usually the promoter who wore the black hat.

Asa Sandell: From Sweden to Gleason's to Nevada
By Bernie McCoy
October 11, 2005
(OCT 11) Gleason's Gym, hard by the East River on the northern edge of Brooklyn, is straight out of central casting. Every movie scene depicting a boxing gym probably uses Gleason's as a model. In fact, many of those movie scenes were actually filmed there.   When I went up the stone stairs to the gym, recently, the surprise was how little it had changed in all the years since the last time I'd been there. The same dust, the same odors, the same sounds; leather on leather, shoes on canvas, the buzzers, the bells. The faces around the gym were a bit different, but in a way, they were exactly the same.  Full Story
