What a great tribute from you guys!

Just like to give you an update to my expressions mentioned in the write-up by you.

Not only did I enjoy visiting Joe’s Gym and getting a lot of advice from him, but also it was one of the largest gym’s that I ever visited, add to this that it was also the cleanest gym that I ever saw.

Not many gyms had a training mat plus a full-size ring, but Joe’s gym had both.

Still wondering what happened to his Son Marcus, who wrestled under the name of “The Great Marcus”? I remember having some training with him and eventually we had a bout together (see the bill in A – Z).

Cheers
