Classic Photos: Mel Epstein & Mike Nixon

Mike Nixon & Mel Epstein
I got te above photo of my old trainer, Mel Epstein,  from my friend Frank Baltazar.  The photo looks to be in the early to mid 1970's before I began training with Mel. He was the closest thing I had to a grandfather. Mel passed away in 1980. Still miss the old guy.

The photo/newspaper clipping of Mel & Mike was given to by Mel back in 1975.
