Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini
Welcome to The Official Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini Website. Through the years, I was asked if I had a web site, and when I answered that I didn’t, inevitably I was asked “why not”? And told that I should get one. To tell you the truth, I really didn’t see the need for one. I thought that those who wanted to find out about me, could go to other web sites and find out. And to be honest, I thought, “who’d care”! I also thought it might be to much work to keep up with and I wouldn’t have the time.
I finally agreed to do it for a couple of reasons: First, for those who truly were interested in my career and what I’m doing now, I thought it was a good way to keep them informed. Second, to have a central place where people could communicate with me, solicit or purchase memorabilia, products and merchandise. There has been way to many sites that say that they have “official” and “authentic” Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini memorabilia and merchandise for sale, but in reality they have been selling “fakes, forgeries n fuggazies”. Too many people think that they purchased signed and ”fight worn” memorabilia, but in fact, I have all of my robes and trunks, with the exception of one, and I know the collector who has it and they are in good hands.
So with that being said, we will be offering a wide variety of products and memorabilia to be purchased and signed. From my special Southpaw Wines to vintage photos, posters, and T-shirts, and limited numbered items, that I will give a letter of authenticity with each, so that there will be nothing left for doubt or lost in translation ! We will be selling DVD’s of my fights. From early in my career up to my North American Lightweight Championship, to my World Championship and Title defenses. I will also write a weekly column called “The Boom Boom Room”. Where I’ll be talking about upcoming fights and my predictions, the state of boxing and my slanted view of life in general. We will have a “Top 5″ list of just about anything and everything. And most important, we will have a bulletin board, where u can leave comments and suggestions about the web site, me or life in general. I promise that I’ll try to respond to the most interesting comments.
In closing, I just want to say, I appreciate your interest, your loyalty and your input, to make this website a success. I want this to be “informative, educational, but most of all, entertaining”. If not, this is an “F and L” for me. A “first and last”!
Again, thank you all and God Bless !!!
