A Visit with Jeffrey Sussman

Jeffrey Sussman tells the rags-to-riches story of Rocky Graziano. Raised by an abusive father, Graziano took to the streets and soon found himself in reformatories and prison cells.

Drafted into the U.S. Army, Graziano went AWOL and was sent to prison for a year. After his release, he went on to have one successful boxing match after another and quickly ascended up the pyramid of professional boxing. In one of the bloodiest battles in the history of the middleweight division, Rocky beat Tony Zale and became the middleweight champion of the world. Rocky Graziano’s story is not only inspiring—it is also one of redemption—of how boxing saved a young man’s life. Register at www.myrml.org or call 631-283-0774 x 523.
