Rest in Peace to a Bronx Favorite (Saoul Mamby) 📰

R.I.P. to former Junior-Welterweight Champion 🇺🇸Saoul Mamby. Mamby was born in the Bronx, and put forth a career spanning an outlandish run of 39 years, and fought his final fight at a remarkable 61 years of age. He is well known for his win over Esteban DeJesus, and Mamby is only 1 of 4 fighters in boxing history to have fights in 5 different decades (the others being  🇺🇸Jack Johnson, 🇵🇦Roberto Duran, and 🇲🇽Kid Azteca).
.He passed away yesterday at the age of 72. We wish his family well in dealing with and coping with Saoul’s passing.
