courtesy Ring 8

February 3, 2016

Cleveland Richie Giachetti boxing trainer has died. He was a boxing trainer who has worked with a number of world champions including Larry Holmes and Mike Tyson.

Giachetti first began working in boxing in 1961 and also helped Don King in his first promotion with Muhammad Ali.

Giachetti is most famous for guiding Larry Holmes to the heavyweight championship, Giachetti trained many other top fighters of the 70ís and 80ís including the like of Earnie Shavers, Aaron Pryor and Greg Page.

When Mike Tyson was dethroned of his heavyweight crown by James "Buster" Douglas in 1990 in a 10th-round knockout in Tokyo, King inserted Giachetti as Tyson's trainer. Giachetti trained Tyson for his next four fights, those against Henry Tillman, Alex Stewart, and the two fights against Donovan "Razor" Ruddock. Giachetti later returned to Tyson's corner for his second fight against Evander Holyfield, the infamous "bite fight".

Giachetti also trained two times world cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormeck and worked with another top cruiserweight Steve Cunningham as well former world contender Sal "Rocky" Cenicola in the late 1980s.

MANCINI, BRAMBLE MEET AGAIN AT RING 10 AWARDS

BRONX, NY  Sept 8th  The old fight network emerged yesterday and it brought back memories of the past with a main event - the reuniting of old foes Livingston Bramble and Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini, who battled in two wars in the mid 1980's. Despite being close to the circuit, both Bramble and Mancini had not seen each other for over two decades.

  Mancini & Bramble staged two of the toughest bouts of the '80's.

 Bramble briefly spoke about his career, which was highlighted by his winning the lightweight title from "Boom Boom", and his motivation for his defense against Philadelphian Tyrone Crawley, and of course the second bout with Mancini.  Mancini spoke about the spirit and determination the two showed in their highly anticipated showdowns, citing that the Mancini camp knew it would not be an easy task to fight the difficult style Bramble presented. Also honored were the Belloise brothers, Steve, Mike and Sal who together fought out of the Bronx in the 1940's They fought 279 bouts and were well known during the sports heyday.  More pictures . . .
