I was really humbled and grateful to receive this from Coach Rocky yesterday. Three autographed gloves that he had personally signed by some fighters at the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota a few years ago. The first two gloves were signed by the Spinks brothers - Michael and Leon - who were the first brothers to hold the undisputed heavyweight title at separate times. Aside from a second Michael Spinks autograph on the bottom, the third glove features autographs from two of my favorites: Aaron “The Hawk” Pryor (on the left- aside from Marvin Hagler, the most avoided fighter of the 80’s), “Irish” Micky Ward (The Fighter - he signed on the thumb,) and former undisputed welterweight champ, Zab Judah at the center. Meiya’s been suggesting that we put up shelves in our room since we moved in, but this might give me the added motivation to get on that. I need someplace to display these. This is such a cool gift; I’m geeking out over them. Thank you again, coach! • • • • • #boxing #boxinglife #rolemodel #grateful #ibhof #canastota #michaelspinks #leonspinks #aaronpryor #mickyward #thefighter #zabjudah #thankyou

‘Aaron Pryor was bottled rage in the ring—absurdly skilled, incredibly fast with relentless aggression. He threw an unmanageable volume of hard punches from every conceivable angle...Pryor owned whatever ring he was in. That was his space.’ -Matthew Swain.
