    I'm looking into doing a profile on a local retired boxer, and I've found some general info online, but I'm looking for some other boxing sources, human or otherwise. The guy wasn't a big name, but he fought a handful of the name heavyweights in the late '80s and early '90s, including George Foreman during one of his comebacks. Any help would be appreciated.

    You've probably seen this but www.boxrec.com is indispensable.

    I'd try calling some guys at The Ring magazine. It's a great archival source and they can probably lead you to some experts.

    I'm bumping this because someone on here pm'd me with the name of Lee Groves, who tunred out to be quite helpful and quite the nice guy. I'm horrible at pruning my PMs, so as I search for the poster in question, I'm hoping he/she will notice this and I can give my proper thanks and appreciation.

    Lee is a good friend of mine. He knows his stuff.
