Back in late March of 1999, I made my first trip out to California to Bill Slayton's Broadway Gym in Watts, with former welterweight contender Adolph Pruitt. The day we arrived the Clarence Henry funeral was taking place for him across the street from the gym. Paul Andrews, Bobby Chacon, Charlie Powell, and many other old fighters wwere hanging out at the gym before they went over to pay respects.
I remember the old fighters afterwards talking about the video and pictures of him they had up and playing during the service. I think they said the video was of him knocking out Bob Satterfield, but I'm not sure.
Thanks,
Matt Greer
