R.I.P. Bennie Georgino: Last of L.A.’s Golden Era

By David A. Avila Few men can bridge the sport of boxing from the 1930s to the present. Last week, one of those few, Bennie Georgino, passed away and with him goes the nuggets of knowledge accrued since the Great Depression to the present day. Georgino, 95, grew up in the East L.A. section known as Lincoln Heights. Ironically, the LA Times erroneously calls it Northern Broadway area. It’s known to those living there as Lincoln Heights, not the Northern Broadway area. It’s less than five miles from the Times Building. But that’s the...

The James Toney vs Dave Tiberi Fight and What It Wrought

Dave Tiberi has never seen “Rob Roy,” the 1995 movie about the head of an 18th-century Scottish clan with Liam Neeson in the title role. But the former world championship contender can identify with a line of dialogue in which Neeson’s character chooses to become a hunted outlaw rather than bear false witness against another, a blameless nobleman, thus violating his own code of conduct. “Honor,” Rob Roy tell his wife, “is the gift a man gives himself.” Tiberi, who has lived his life by similarly exacting standards, considers...
