That's right folks, one of the greatest sports stories you will ever hear and he lives right here in Indiana. His name, Ray Seales, AKA The Sugar Man and he went Gloves Off with Producer Kyle.
Ray Seales won the 1972 gold medal at the Olympics in Munich, Germany, and he hasn't taken it out of his pocket since, literally. He remembers the Munich massacre. Ray went blind from boxing. Most recently, he's had his 8th eye surgery and it is a miracle because he kept his faith.
I picked up Mr. Ray Seales last Friday night, we went downtown to have some grub and then hit the studio for an hour to chat about boxing and life. It was truly an honor.
