I enjoyed talking with middleweight boxer Jimmy Lange between halves at the JMU/George Mason basketball game last Saturday.
Since I’m from Detroit and did some boxing there, we talked about Detroit boxers. He thought Joe Louis was the best boxer to come out of the city, while I told him, pound for pound, I thought Sugar Ray Robinson was the best.
Jimmy is fighting Jimmy “The Fighting School Teacher” Holmes in a 10-round light middleweight boxing match at the George Mason Patriot Center on Saturday, March 12th.
Lange has a 34 wins- 4 losses- 2 draws record. He has 24 KO to his credit, the last one a dramatic 10th round knockout of Joe Wyatt this past November.
Holmes is fighting out of Indiana, and has 19 wins- 1 loss, and 10 by KO.
