"See these greats defy the laws of geriatrics."It would be a friendly gathering of aging boxers, a few Block bouncers, guys that could-have-been and should-have-been, palookas fighting to get back from Palookaville, if only for one night. They even invited Baltimore's most famous Boogie. All for charity, too.It sounds sweet.
