Former fighters & fighters, post the earliest career pic you have of yourself

I found a bunch of old photos I hadn’t seen in ages yesterday & came across this pic of me as an amateur. I fought my ammy career at lightweight ( 132 lbs ) & light-welterweight ( 139 lbs ). I believe this pic was of me at 17 just before I fought in the Buffalo Golden Gloves in 1978. I made it to the semi-finals but lost a close decision to Phil Richter of Niagara Falls.

And here’s a pic of me about 3 years later taken a couple of days before my pro debut in 1982. Which I won via KO over Anthony Curry ( who also fought under the name Kato Ali ).

So, now that I’ve posted mine, let’s see who else will follow.
