Salita's Mentor Dies

Jimmy O'Pharrow, Dmitriy Salita's boxing mentor, died this past Sunday night. O'Pharrow was 85 years old. Here is a touching tribute about the man affectionately known as Jimmy O. written by Salita. O'Pharrow is survived by his wife and two sons.


  1. ..Interesting it's not on Salita's own site..

  2. Yeah Brian, they're not always so good about updating the site. Until late last year, Winky Wright was still #2 on Salita's pound-for-pound list until they took the list down. And "Hitch" is still listed as his movie recommendation!
