Bert Sugar Passes Away (1937-2012)


You may not have known the name but you definitely knew the face. With his trademark cigar, fedora and self-deprecating jokes spoken through his raspy voice, Bert Randolph Sugar was a staple in boxing documentaries and commentary. He was a fixture who was always audible and pretty good with his picks.

Bert never soured on boxing and spoke with enthusiasm about the sport from the old days of Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, and Sugar Ray Robinson to present fighters such as Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. He was a former editor of The Ring Magazine and also ran his own magazine for a few years called Boxing Illustrated. Fans of boxing should mourn his loss but also celebrate boxing as Bert always did during his life.

The following story is from Yahoo news:
MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. (AP) — Bert Sugar, an iconic boxing writer and sports historian who was known for his trademark fedora and ever-present cigar, died Sunday of cardiac arrest. He was 75.
