|Today, we look back at Johnny Lira: boxer, “man about town… suave, debonair, and character extraordinaire.”
In 1993, Doug Sawyer and Ben Joravsky interviewed Lira at the gym at Fuller Park at 45th and Princeton for our show Chicago Slices.
He died Saturday at the age of 61.
They don’t make guys like Johnny Lira anymore…
Check out the full hour with Lira.
