BOXING – Scott Yaniga’s Ring Wise -R.I.P. Jose “Chequi” Torres

You consider yourself a fight fan?

Sit back and enjoy reading this talented sports writer Scott Yaniga’s take on boxing with his column Ring Wise featured here every month on the River View Observer website.

Welcome to the debut of Ring Wise on the River View Observer website. Join us as we explore The Sweet Science of Boxing, both past and present. Readers are always welcome to send a comment, question or story suggestion along to us, via the email address at the end of this issue’s column – Scott Yaniga

R.I.P. Jose “Chequi” Torres

josetorres.jpg

When we think of the world of boxing and its inhabitants, probably the last thing we consider is the intellect of the persons wearing the gloves and trunks. Yet, by virtue of writing two of the best books on two of boxing’s most compelling figures; writing a regular city side column for The New York POST; being a political activist and campaigner for Bobby Kennedy, as well as being a regular at legendary literary boite, Elaine’s, former world light heavyweight champion Jose “Chequi” Torres transcended the sport and became a man of letters.

    Walk through the halls of the jazz music department at New Jersey City University, and you can’t help but be struck by the lush and professional sounds of music students practicing: horn players getting down with a Miles Davis tune, jazz ensembles playing intricate arrangements of sophisticated big band charts, and vocalists warming up to a hip, smooth song.  The NJCU Jazz Studies Program (part of the Music, Dance & Theatre Department) has become one of the best programs in the country to train serious young jazz musicians. Students from all corners of the country are finding that NJCU’s Jazz Program offers world-class jazz teachers, personal one-on-one study, and the chance to sit in with some of the greatest jazz musicians in the world.
