Mancini to handle PPV commentary



“Boom Boom” Mancini to handle PPV commentary for 10/20 Inaugural

October 09th, 2006


Youngstown icon Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini returns home October 20th to handle color commentary for the pay-per-view broadcast of the inaugural “Mike Tyson’s World Tour” stop at the Chevrolet Centre.

Mancini (29-5, 23 KOs) captured the World Boxing Association lightweight title May 8, 1982 with a stunning first-round knockout of defending champ Arturo Frias in Las Vegas. Mancini successfully defended his title belt four times against Eernesto Espana (TKO6), Deuk Koo Kim, (KO5), Orlando Romero (KO9), and Bobby Chacon (TKO3).

Now 45 years old, Mancini retired from the ring in 1992 and lives in Los Angeles, where he produces movies. “I was born and raised in Youngstown,” Mancini proudly said. “Youngstown has a great boxing tradition and that’s one of the reasons Mike wanted to go there. It’s like the 500-pound gorilla, the traveling circus coming to town. Mike Tyson is still the biggest name in boxing. You don’t get to see Mike Tyson in places like Youngstown. This is a once in a lifetime experience and people are going to buy tickets to see him.

Legendary “Iron” Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs), former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, boxes veteran Corey “T-Rex” Sanders (23-10, 15 KOs), who holds a knocked out victory against reigning World Boxing Council heavyweight title-holder Oleg Maskaev, in a four-round exhibition headlining the pay-per-view event.
