In reference to Jim Murray’s well deserved salute to fight announcer Jimmy Lennon, one name should be added: Dan Tobey.
Possessed of a special flair, Dan Tobey was every bit as dramatic and eloquent as any ring announcer. When Murray wrote, “on the West Coast, when you talk of historic fight announcers, you can only mean . . . (Jimmy Lennon).” I, for a least one, would beg to differ.
