Ramon "Kid Rayo" Rodriguez, nicaragua, is not only one of the greatest boxers of his time....he is someone to remember. he is a great friend, father, husband, and grandfather. he now lives in Granada Hills, California and is and always will be a honorable boxer. We all love you!

Love always,

Kid Rayo has touched the lives of so many people, in his many travels and daily encounters. In his Country of Nicaragua, he was a Hero & will always be a Legend.
After knocking one of Central Americas Gladiators Tuzo Portuguez & claiming Welterweight Title of Central America, he received a telegram from the President of Nicaragua, congratulating him for his Victory.
Yes a VERY Honorable man.

In 1957-1961 I was a Catholic priest assigned to St. Malachy Church on 82nd st. in Los Angeles. Paul Andrew's parents (fine people) belonged there and introduced me to Paul who was making a comeback after an injury a year or so before, in a major fight in New York. Paul was also employed. At the behest of his manager, I attended a number of his fights at the Olympic Auditorium. He won all of them until fighting Curley Lee (who had a successful career until he himself suffered brain damage). After being transferred from that parish I lost track of Paul. Some years later, I left the priesthood and became a probation officer and am now retired. All my memories of Paul and his family are the highest. They are still in my prayers.
