Ten Count for Timekeeper

By Chuck Giampa

Mike La Cella, a timekeeper with the Nevada State Athletic Commission for almost three decades, passed away last week. La Cella was a long time resident of Las Vegas, originally from Warren, Ohio. He became a timekeeper in 1981. His first major assignment was on the Leonard-Hearns card in 1981 and he was one of the timekeepers working the historic Foreman-Moore Heavyweight Title fight. Mike was the most kind, unselfish, professional imaginable. Rest In Peace, Good Friend!

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
