Highlight Highlight: George Benton Tribute

Posted: October 1, 2011 in highlight highlight

It’s certainly been a while, friends, both for Highlight Highlight and reviews. It’s been a busy month working on the independent fight film Rise and Fail (which you should absolutely check out if you haven’t yet!), but trust me when I say content is coming back strong.

Let’s start off with this fantastic tribute to one of boxing’s best and brightest, the legendary George Benton. Brought to us by TheGreatA, this video highlights Benton’s amazing talent and skill as both a fighter and a trainer, mentoring such great boxers as Pernell Whitaker, Evander Holyfield, and Meldrick Taylor. Don’t be surprised if his fighting style seems a bit familiar, he’s from the birthplace of the Philly Shell, after all.
