“Boxer” Gordy honored!

“Berry Gordy Jr., the founder of Motown Records, was inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame over the weekend in Studio City. With a professional record of 11-3-2, he had fought three times in the Golden State before his career in the music business. Newly crowned WBC light welterweight champ Timothy Bradley was a special guest. “

Now I knew that Berry Gordy had a boxing career before Motown — but who knew he was good at it!

Congratulations Mr. Gordy.
