Ten Count for Matchmaker Johnny Bos

Sad to report the news that colorful boxing matchmaker Johnny Bos has passed away at the age of 61. Bos was a major player on the New York boxing scene, booking early “build-up” fights for Gerry Cooney, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Paul Malignaggi and Yuri Foreman among others. He was the manager of former world champion Joey Gamache. Bos moved to Florida in 2008 and is a member of the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame.
