"SAD" SAM ICHINOSE
"Sad" Sam Ichinose was
considered Hawai'i's "Mr. Boxing" for 50 years. He was "Dado"
Marinos pilot. He took him to three continents, seeking a world championship. He
went as far as Glasgow, Scotland with his world flyweight contender.
He earned his nickname "Sad" Sam because he rarely made
any money on his fighters.
Until his retirement in 1982, Ichinose had either trained,
managed or promoted every boxing champion who came from the islands.
He promoted more than 425 fights during his career.
On January 9, 2001 he joined Bobo Olson as the only two
Hawai'i Sports Hall of Fame inductees who are also in the
International Boxing Hall of Fame .
He died in 1993.
The proposal known as The Marshall
Plan was passed on June 5, 1947. The U.S. Congress immediately authorized foreign aid to
Europe, totaling $2 billion over four years.
