In a tribute to the Olympic games in Beijing, and my late father's birthday today, I present Dad's bout with an up and coming Chinese hopeful back during my parents' visit to China in 2000. Mom and Dad really loved this trip, despite not winning any gold medals or Golden Gloves titles.

The kid in this photo is probably competing in the welterweight division in the Olympics this year. So if he wins, he owes thanks to the American sparring partner he met early in his career. As someone who's stepped into the ring with Hard-Hitting Harvey, I know first hand that the ol' man never pulled his punches.
