LAS VEGAS — At my 5th official Amateur Boxers Reunion, this one held at the Rival Boxing Store in Las Vegas this past Saturday, 1988 United States Olympic teammates Kelcie Banks and Roy Jones Jr. ran into each other for the first time since those Olympics.

I snapped this photo literally within 30 seconds of them seeing each other.

Also at the reunion were the likes of Alex Ramos, Thell Torrence, “Showtime” Shawn Porter, Montell Griffin, Clarence “Bones” Adams, Mickey Bey and James “Quick” Tillis.

 

┬áThe wait in the dressing room before a professional boxing match -that last hour- could be enough to strip a man who never boxed before of whatever pride, desire and heart he THOUGHT he had” – Iceman John Scully, April 2002
