LAX Crowne Plaza: Weigh-in with Abie Han and Louie Burke
Yesterday Jeri and I drove down to the Stubhub Center (formerly the Home Depot Center) in Carson to pick up our tickets for tonight's fights.between J.C. Chavez Jr. and Andrzej Fonfara. It will be nice seeing Chavez Jr. fight but the real reason we're going is to see Abraham "Abie" Han vs Fernando Guerrero. Han is trained by my cousin Louie Burke, so this is family.
After getting the tickets we drove to the LAX Crowne Plaza for the weigh-in and to spend some time with Louie. We had a chance to meet Abie. What a great young man. What my old late trainer, Mel Epstein, would call - a deserving guy!. We'll be rooting for him tonight. He looks to be in great shape, and confident.
We had lunch, took a walk and then we left so they could get back to the business at hand. Best of luck to Abie Han tonight!
