"Most of the young men of talent whom I have met in this country give one the impression of being somewhat demented.
They roam about in our midst like anonymous messengers from another planet"

"My props to Ruperto Chavez, but he did not break my nose in this fight. That honor went to heavyweight Andy Whitley, in the gym, two weeks before the fight. I fought anyway, seeing it was going to be my last Gloves, and the fight was stopped on bleeding when Chavez slipped an uppercut in when we were up against the ropes. I was offered a chance to avenge the loss at that year's Maywood Park Night of Champions, but Ruperto made it all the way to the semi-finals of that year's National Golden Gloves tourney and I wound up fighting Golden Glove champion Russ Felger instead. Good thing too, the nose never did heal all the way. I'll say this though, the baddest mo-fo in the mix was Andy Whitley. He took my nose right off my face!" Gary Dobry
