posted by Fast Freddie - 

Here is a rare gem.  Talk about some Youngstown history.  Local TV news documentary about a young Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini from WYTV. This piece, by Jack Bowe, was from early in Boom Boom's career.This aired in January 1980.  Ray was just embarking on his quest to win the title for his dad who's boxing career was side tracked by World War II.  I remember me and buddies from the South Side heading up to Cleveland to see Ray fight as he battled his way through the Golden Gloves.
