This, from Ring 8 (NY) historian Henry Hascup:

Emile Griffith, age 73,  the former 6 time World Champion is doing a lot better, keep your prayers coming in.

I just received a call from Emile’s son Luis, who is pictured above with Emile, and he told me that Emile is talking and even joking with the nurses. This is wonderful news, as a few weeks ago, Emile just stared at you with no reaction. Luis also told me that his blood work is back to normal, as well as his liver, heart and kidneys.

Emile has been a longtime member of Ring 8 and the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame. He was Inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, the World Boxing Hall of Fame, Ring Magazine Boxing Hall of Fame, as well as the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame. Not only did he box more Main Events at Madison Square Garden then any other boxer But he also boxed more Championship rounds then any boxer in the history of our sport.

We still must keep him in our prayers as now he has to build up his strength.

If you care to visit him or send a card, here’s where Emile is at:

Nassau Extended Care Facility

1 Greenwich St
Hempstead, NY 11550
Room 435A – West Wing
