Ross Dove – Smoking Joe

By November 9, 2011Blog

One of my greatest auction times was doing Fight Night charity auctions with Smoking Joe. Frazier.   Once I asked him when did he was tough.   He said 11th round in the Garden with Ali.  Well, we all can’t be heavyweight greats but we all get our 11th round in the garden.  At HGP we will be in the center of our auction ring throwing leather and remembering Joe.   I sold his autographed gloves for more than those of his lifetime rival and he hugged me and told me everything done in the ring counts.  I am on the road pitching auctions and in his honor will fight even harder to win.    Best.
