COLONEL BOB SHERIDAN IN LAS VEGAS HOSPITAL

Colonel Bob Sheridan

NEAR TWO MONTH HOSPITAL STAY

San Francisco, CA- The man that has televised more fights live than anybody in history, Colonel Bob Sheridan has been in and out (more in) of a Las Vegas hospital over the past two months. This is said to be from difficulty with a Pacemaker the Colonel had installed in late 2010. Having had four heart attacks, Bob Sheridan, who televised 900 world title fights (three or four with me) broke into the field when he televised the “Rumble in The Jungle,” Muhammad Ali’s upset of George Foreman from Zaire, Africa in 1974. His last fight was said to be in August 2010. We hope that the Colonel, a World Boxing Hall of Fame member that can make a dull fight sound exciting with his quips and high-energy broadcast mode, can get the health issue solved and be back behind the microphone soon.

  2. Thanks again Pedro for the update, Yeah Colonel Bob is one of the greats. I got to hang out with at the WBC convention in Cancun and then work with him at the cowboys stadium a couple of weeks later. Bob is a real gentleman and a boxing encyclopedia.
    We all hope Bob is well very soon.

  4. Well I cartainly don’t wish a difficult illness or painful death on the man.

    Knowing nothing about Sheridan as a private citizen, I’ll deffer to the experience of those who are acquainted with him personally.

    However I can’t say I’d miss his work on the air if he were to never work again. Over the past two decades he became increasingly capable of shameless shilling and spin making for King’s agendas.

  7. Hey Bob,

    I’ve missed you on my recent visits to Las Vegas … You are a first rate GENTLEMAN, great story teller and a riot to be with … I still have fond memories of our trip to Melbourne and our dinner with “Bernie the Attorney” the head of the Melbourne Boxing Commission …

    You are loved by many and our prayers are with you for a speedy recovery … Your Friend … Chuck

  8. Dear Bob: This morning we got a frightening message that you had a heart attack or stroke of which none is good news. We hope you are getting taken care of and we are sending our prayers to you. You are my main man. We love and miss you Ferdie and Luisita from Ovetown ghetto and the 5th Street Gym family.

  9. I have been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It?s lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
