Boxing – 1987 – Dr Ferdie Pacheco PostFight Interview Of Frankie Warren After Beating Gene Hatcher


We have often written about what we call The Golden Age of Boxing here at ImaSportsphile…..a period that started in 1964 with Cassius Clay defeated Sonny Liston for the world heavyweight championship….. and ran through 1999 when Evander Holyfield lost the title to Lennox Lewis…..for during this 35 year era… there were more “legends of boxing” to enter the ring than at any other time in history of the sport.  There were so many great to super great fighters….in darn near every weight division…..who fought each other and anyone who was anybody…..and the truth be known…..there were many really good boxers….like Frankie Warren and Gene Hatcher…..who have been so easily forgotten…..cuz there were so many greats to remember. 

Frankie Warren was a super lightweight boxer…..who had 30 wins against 2 losses…..while fighting for the world championship against Buddy McGirt…..while holding the USBA super lightweight title from 1987 to 1989….while his opponent in the fight of this interview, Gene Hatcher, was WBA super lightweight champions from 1984 to 1985…..and fought for the WBC super lightweight title against Lloyd Honeyghan in 1987…..while having finished his career with 32 wins and 7 losses.
