Terri Moss: Next Chapter
by Bernie McCoy
October 6, 2017

(OCT 6)  I grew up, in a long gone era, when boxing in New York City competed for primacy in the hearts of sports fans with baseball, college basketball and horse racing.. Madison Square Garden, located on 8th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets, was, emphatically, the mecca of boxing, not only in the city, but throughout the country and, probably, the world. But it was the strong foundation of neighborhood clubs throughout the five boroughs that fueled the popularity of the sport. St. Nicks Arena in Manhattan, Eastern Parkway Arena in Brooklyn and Sunnyside Garden in Queens made up the "big three". In addition to numerous clubs throughout the city, active venues extended as far north as White Plains where the Westchester County Center hosted frequent cards. That, of course was then, this is now.  Full Story
