Fathers and Sons Honored

Jesus Pimental and Frank Baltazar Sr. at the Father and Son dinner in Commerce, California

The following photos are from this past weekend's Golden State Boxer's Association 1st annual "Don Fraser Lifetime Achievement Award" at Steven's Steakhouse in the city of Commerce, California. Frank Baltazar Sr. along with his sons Frankie Jr, Tony (The Tiger) and Bobby were honored, as well as many other fathers and sons, for their involvement and participation in boxing. Congratulations to the Baltazars and all the honorees.

In the following photo from left to right are Mando Ramos, Ray Mancini, Bobby Chacon and Danny "Little Red" Lopez. Ramos, Chacon and Lopez are three of Southern California's most beloved boxers. What a great photo of four of the biggest hearts in boxing! Thanks Frank.
