Reception For F.I.S.T.
A not-for-profit organization whose initials stand for Fighters’ Initiative for Support and Training. Their mission is to provide treatment, counseling and career path assistance to boxers who lack the education and resources to make the transition from the ring to a more self-sustaining life. F.I.S.T. was founded in 1998 by Gerry Cooney who, along with other boxing legends such as Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta, Carlos Ortiz, and famed boxing referee Arthur Mercante, World Class boxing trainer and TV commentator Teddy Atlas and former Congressman Rick Lazio, was present at the event.
