BROOKLYN, NY — I love going to fights. I don’t care where they are or who is fighting in most cases. For me, attending fights is not just about the boxing matches. It’s more often than not a very simple way to reconnect and stay in touch with friends in the game as we hang out in our element and watch the show together. Fights in the greater New York City area are especially effective in this way as a great many of my boxing connects reside in the Northeast and highly publicized world title fights like Keith Thurman-Danny Garcia on February 4th at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. They are the perfect type of event to draw them out.

As I drove to New York City this past Saturday for that fight, the closer I got to the arena in Brooklyn, the more filled with anticipation I became. Now I had originally planned to find parking at a no-doubt very expensive lot near the arena, but as luck would have it, a spur of the moment phone call with a longtime friend in the game, Jean Manon, resulted in her directing me to an area within walking distance to the arena that was safe and, just as importantly, free of charge. And as I parked on a particular street within the general area where she directed me to go, I looked at the street sign so that I could write the address down for when the fights were over. And as I caught sight of the address next to where my car was sitting I recognized it instantly as the former home street of a friend in the game, 1984 Olympic Champion Mark Breland.

CLEARWATER, FL, February 25, 2017 — A week out from his Welterweight Championship unification bout versus World Boxing Council champion Danny Garcia (33-0 19 knockouts) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, the lithe and muscular, 5’ 7 1/2” tall World Boxing Association kingpin Keith Thurman (27-0, 22 KO’s) packs a keen mind along with the muscle, athleticism and pop — a point he demonstrates when he recalls our interview at a shopping mall in his native Clearwater, Florida in 2012.
