Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.

The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

In the 70s, I worked at a firm in the city. Every day I would depart from my house in Logan VillageRead More and I would drive down Dundalk Avenue to work. Occasionally I would see a man jogging on Dundalk Avenue from the direction of Turner's Station and he was wearing an athletic sweat suit. I often wondered who was this guy. Then one morning I figured it out....that's Larry Middleton. Rest In Peace, Mr. Middleton.
Larry Bannerman January 21, 2014 at 11:59 pm
Runymeade---Yes that was him. Most of us growing up in Turner Station in the 60's were in awe ofRead More him. Some even got to spar with him. Larry was an everyday person and if you met him, you liked him. Like a lot of young guys back then, he joined the Army. That is where he became a boxer. With 49 KO's he was All-Army Champ. When he got out of the service he turned pro. From Boxing magazine---Former heavyweight contender Larry Middleton died on Thursday, January 9. No word on the cause of death. Middleton reportedly was 68 years old. Mr. Middleton boxed out of the famous Mack Lewis Gym in Baltimore, MD and was a pro from 1965-1978. After going 1-1-1 in his first three bouts, Middleton reeled off 19 straight wins including a big 10-round unanimous decision victory over fellow contender Joe Bugner on November 24, 1971 in Nottinghamshire, England. Middleton would go on to face some legendary names in the heavyweight division including Jerry Quarry), Ron Lyle (twice), Jimmy Ellis, Oscar Bonavena, Duane Bobick and Scott LeDoux. While Middleton was a top 10 heavyweight, losses to this impressive type of competition in an extremely competitive division would keep him from gaining a world title shot. Middleton’s biggest bout may have been his contest against former world champ Ken Norton on July 10, 1976 in San Diego, CA. This could have been called the “Battle of the Jawbreakers” as Middleton broke Bugner’s jaw in his win and Norton broke Muhammad Ali’s jaw in 1973. Middleton would lose to Norton by a tenth-round TKO. Middleton would finish his career in 1978 with a record of 23-10-2, 14 KO’s. In later years, Middleton worked with young people training boxers. “Larry was a outstanding boxing trainer /person/father figure — he taught me so much about boxing and life I’m so glad that I had him in my life,” said Baltimore boxing coach and former pro boxer Marvin McDowell. “He was one of the reasons I started UMAR Boxing Program to help the children liked he helped me .He will be missed in the world boxing community.” Fightnews sends its deepest condolences to the Middleton Family. Thank you Marge Neal. This is important.

He spent a large portion making he Optimist the great organization it has become. Gene is right; they will be hard shoes to fill!
