LAS VEGAS — Former champ (and opponent of mine) Michael Nunn calls me at the designated time this past Saturday in Las Vegas at my fifth Official Amateur Boxing Reunion (held at Russ Anber’s Rival Boxing Store on Sunset Road) so that I can put him on the phone with his former professional opponent (they fought in 1986) Alex “The Bronx Bomber” Ramos.
I also put Michael on the phone that day with 1984 Olympic Champion Paul Gonzalez and former world title opponent Merqui Sosa.
