Longtime publicist Bill Caplan, who is now employed by "Golden Boy Promotions," received the Boxing Writers Association of America's "Good Guy" award the annual dinner, held in Las Vegas on May 6. Caplan worked for George Foreman for many years, and the plan called for Foreman to present Caplan his award. A few days before the event Foreman informed the BWAA that he could not attend.
A week after the dinner a handwritten letter arrived at the BWAA. It was from Big George.
