R.I.P. Bert Sugar

The Washington Post is reporting that Bert Sugar has died of a heart attack. I always appreciated his writing and his accessibility to fans. I remember how excited my friend Kevin Gonzalez was when he met Bert in Vegas after a Cotto fight. Apparently, Sugar was gracious and delighted to talk boxing with Kevin and his father. At first, few recognized him, but as the night went on, so I am told, more and more people gathered to hear Sugar's stories, and he was happy to oblige, holding court for hours as he put em down and waved his famous cigar. Whatever you feel about Sugar, he was an icon, and this fan will be missing him for some time.

R.I.P. Bert Sugar. He was a great friend to boxing and from all accounts, a genuinely good man.
