Joey came to the USA when he was only one when his family settled in New Haven, Ct.
As a boy he used to shine shoes at sites that included the local boxing arenas. 
At 14 he decided he wanted to box; as an amateur he had a record of 
41-4, winning the Ct state bantam and featherweight titles. A box factory fire in 
1939 that severely injured his elder brother Dom determined his future. Unsure 
if he wanted to continue with boxing, Dom, before he died, made Joey promise to 
care for his wife and infant son. Boxing was thereafter Joey's full-time 
profession. Drafted in 1943 Joey was with Eisenhower's Third Army and saw 
active service in France, Italy, and Germany. Not the fighter after the War that 
he was before it, he retired in late 1946 having lost to fighters he thought he 
would easily have beaten in his pre-War years. He opened a delicatessen and 
produce store that was successful until the advent of the supermarkets. He then 
joined the supermarket chain A&P and worked with them for 31 years. Joey who 
recently turned 81, lives in Mount Vernon, NY, with his wife. His family 
remains firm friends with the family of fellow fighters of his day, especially 
the Belloise family and the family of Curley St. Angelo.
