Boom Boom is in the house!
By JOE SCALZO
Former lightweight champ Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini is ringside. He'll be doing the commentary for the pay-per-view broadcast and I'm wondering if their audio will be able to keep up. I've said it before – interviewing Mancini is like interviewing an auctioneer.
It's amazing how many people still love Mancini. He's doing a live TV spot ringside and there are people lined up to take his picture with phones and cameras. And it's obvious he still loves it. They just announced his name over the loudspeaker and he got a huge ovation.
Incidentally, Harry Arroyo (who is standing about 20 feet away from Ray) is still, to this day, upset that he never got a chance to fight Mancini.
