I grew up watching the fights every week with my grandfather, Paul Cochia, during the fifties in Bpt., Ct. and my love for boxing continues to this day.
Out of all the boxing greats that we saw, Carmen Basilio was my favorite. Before each fight began, I can still see Carmen in his corner kneeling and saying a short prayer and making the sign of the cross and go on to give the toughest performance each and everytime that had us sitting at the edge of our seats shouting our heads off. He had class in and out of the ring. God rest his soul and our deepest condolences to the entire family. Memory Eternal.
