Gym owner Bruce Silverglade shared his thoughts on the esteemed Mr. Blackmoore:

“Lenox Blackmoore is a pillar at Gleason's Gym,” said Silverglade.  “He is from the old school and is an expert at the basics of boxing. He helps Gleason's Gym develop champions.”

Editor/publisher Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the thought to be impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of TheSweetScience.com from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live since 2017. He now does work for PROBOX TV, the first truly global boxing network.
