I used to sparr with Kevin in Buffano’s Gym. I was only 16 and Kevin almost always left me with two black eyes. My teachers taught I was an abused kid. Kevin was a Prince. He would see me on the streets with my friends and always come over to me and say hi how are you doing Jerry. My friend’s mouths would drop and say you know Kevin Smith. Everyone in Jersey City knew who Kevin was. Kevin stayed with me all of my life. While I was in school pursuing my masters degree and times were hard I could always see Kevin saying “Nobody said it would be easy kid”. Kevin would say to me wait til you fight somebody your age, your gona knock him out. I later won the NJ Golden Gloves, Kevin was already gone but his spirit never left me. I can see him hitting the heavy bag like it was yesterday. God Bless you.
