Fightnews is sad to announce the passing of Hall of Fame referee Lou Filippo, who died Monday in Los Angeles. After a career as a pro boxer in the 40s and 50s, Filippo became a world class referee, working many world title fights. He also appeared many Hollywood films and TV shows (including the Rocky movies), almost always as a referee. He was inducted into both the World and California Boxing Hall of Fame. He retired from refereeing in 2005. Filippo was 83.
