Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini visited the Boxing Hall of Fame yesterday
CANASTOTA, NY – AUGUST 2, 2013 – Former WBA lightweight champion of the world Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini visited the Boxing Hall of Fame yesterday to promote his new film The Good Son. While in Canastota “Boom Boom” conducted media interviews to discuss his championship career and the film, toured the Hall of Fame Museum and stepped back into the MSG boxing ring where he successfully defended his world title 30 years ago. The immensely popular Youngstown, OH native also graciously signed autographs and posed for photos with fans who were on hand to meet him.
“It was an absolute thrill to welcome Ray back to Canastota and hear about the new film from the champ himself,” said Hall director Edward Brophy.
The Good Son tells the story of Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, who wasn’t merely the lightweight boxing champion – he was a national sports hero, personifying blue-collar toughness. His vow to win the championship for his father, the original “Boom Boom”, captivated the country. The film includes appearances by fellow Youngstowner Ed O’Neill (Modern Family), Hall of Famer Sugar Ray Leonard and actor and pugilist Mickey Rourke.
The Good Son is available to rent through SnagFilms on VOD (Video on Demand) via cable and satellite providers and iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/the-good-son/id664335309). There will also be a theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles and additional select theaters nationwide on August 9th.
