On Saturday,  August 15 at the Hard Rock restaurant inside Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, I held my 3rd official amateur boxer reunion, and the turnout was spectacular. My first two reunions were held in Las Vegas last December with the likes of Alex Ramos, Mike McCallum, Lamon Brewster and Montell Griffin showing up and this past June in New York City, with former champions Junior Jones and Iran “The Blade” Barkley in attendance.

This one at the biggest casino in the world featured an even deeper guest list as the likes of “The Fighter” Mickey Ward and his brother Dickie Ecklund, former two-time welterweight champion Marlon Starling, 1996 and 2004 U.S. Olympic super heavyweights Lawrence Clay-Bey and Jason Estrada and “Poison” Junior Jones made their way in.

Sports analysts will tell you that at the world-class level in any sport, the difference in athletes’ skill level is often quite small.

Enter the Iceman.  With Chad Dawson’s championship rematch against all-time great Bernard Hopkins just hours away, it bears noting that his trainer, John Scully, has fought for world titles, sparred with champs like Roy Jones, Jr. and James Toney. Now, he’s helped Dawson hone his skills razor sharp for tonight’s epic battle in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“Iceman” John Scully was born in Hartford, Connecticut to Gerald and Carol Scully. His father was a salesman selling candy, soda and cigarettes to stores, mini-marts and gas stations, while his mother (who passed in 1996) worked as a secretary for an insurance company.

A graduate of Windsor High School in Connecticut in 1985, Scully launched what would become an illustrious amateur boxing career in 1982. Highlights included middleweight championship wins at the 1987 Ohio State Fair, 1987 National PAL tournament, and the 1988 Eastern U.S. Olympic Trials.  His final tally as an amateur was 57 wins and 13 losses.
