Friday Night Fights

Remember when boxing fans were glued to the tube on Friday nights watching many  talented big-name fighters go at it in the 1950s.  The bouts were often sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer and Gillette Blue Blades.  Bobo Olson, Carmen Basilio, Kid Gavilan, and Gene Fullmer were among the fighters who competed.  Most fighters gave it there all and left nothing between the ropes.
