Jack HARRELL, Boxing Trainer And Historian: (1944-2006)
With the motto 'Refuse to Lose,' he ran Toronto's under appreciated Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame and trained aspiring boxers for 43 years
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Damon Runyon could have come up with this: A sailor who gets into the fight game, eats and breathes boxing for more than four decades, helps kids stay out of trouble, marries three times, dies relatively young, and is remembered by fellow salts and pugilists as a tough guy with a heart of gold.
That was "Florida" Jack HARRELL -- a character in a character's world. He trained boxers for 43 years and ran the unheralded Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame, housed in his eponymous gym up a gloomy flight of stairs at the corner of Yonge and Bloor streets in Toronto. Its high point came in October, 2002, when Mr. HARRELL inducted Muhammad Ali during half time at a Toronto Argonauts game.
Despite the attendance of then heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and former titleholders Larry Holmes and Evander Holyfield -- and adoring chants of "Ali! Ali!" from the crowd -- it was an event Mr. HARRELL lamented was buried by the media. He also rued that his boxing museum never caught the public's attention, despite the effort and his own money that he'd put into it.
"Most people just walk by. They haven't realized that there are two professional sports halls of fame on Yonge Street," he said a few years ago, referring to the more famous Hockey Hall of Fame.
"It always struck me as odd, in a nice way, that here was an American guy [who was] into Canadian boxing history, who took it on himself to open a museum and the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame," recalled George CHUVALO, the Canadian heavyweight warhorse who twice fought Mr. Ali and earned Mr. HARRELL's respect for never being knocked down through 97 pro fights.
"He loved boxing and he helped a lot of kids," said Mr. CHUVALO. "He was a good-hearted guy. A bit flamboyant, but a cool guy. A character -- a good character."
With every finger ringed and bejewelled in a way that made his hands look like they were brandishing high-end brass knuckles, coupled with a black hat and Hulk Hogan-style mustache, Mr. HARRELL was "the sort of a guy who should have gone to Hollywood," said Spider Jones, a three-time former Golden Gloves champion and Hall of Fame inductee who now co-hosts ESPN Classic's Famous Fights with Mr. CHUVALO. " Jack was wearing bling before bling was in."
He had some rough edges but Mr. HARRELL "was always looking at the bright side of things and constantly making plans for the future," remembered his friend, Robin PITCHER, a one-time referee and judge for Boxing Ontario who wandered into Mr. HARRELL's gym one day "just to check it out."
Mr. HARRELL's son, Jackson Jefferson, known as J.J., a provincial Junior A champion in 1994-'95, became Mr. PITCHER's personal trainer, "and I began to learn to box at the tender age of 58."
Mr. HARRELL was a "wicked" pool player, Mr. PITCHER recalled, and a regular at the Naval Club of Toronto, where he regaled patrons with tales of boxing and the sea -- aware, perhaps, of the parallels.
The "Florida" moniker was owed to his birthplace but also to a voice once described as thicker than a Tallahassee swamp. An only child, he grew up in north Florida and served in the U.S. Navy from 1962 until 1966, starting at the Great Lakes Training Center in Illinois and onto the communications cruiser U.S.S. Northampton and the destroyer U.S.S. Claude Jones. He served a brief tour in Vietnam, about which he spoke little.
No one seems to know why Mr. HARRELL came to Toronto in 1974, but he did it in a 1937 Chevy hotrod that he drove for years afterward. He worked for about a dozen years as a subway train driver, then opened a boxing gym on Yonge Street. About six years ago, he moved it half a block north, where it endured a fire and a perennially leaky roof.
When membership dwindled from 300 -- about half of them women to 50 or so, he struggled to keep the place open. "Right now, I've got one foot on the top of the ground and trying to get the other off the banana peel and get it going," he said a year ago. "It hasn't been easy."
Yet he lived his motto of "Refuse to Lose," and the doors stayed open until five days after his death.
"I don't know how he did it," sighed Mr. PITCHER, "but I do know that it drained him financially, physically and emotionally."
Mr. CHUVALO is all too aware of the pitfalls of the fight game. "Guys like Jack are really unsung heroes. They don't get enough credit for what they do. That's a tough business, to open a gym and keep it going. If you want to get rich quick, you better not open a boxing gym."
Even so, Mr. HARRELL owned quite a collection of ring memorabilia that was rumoured to have cost him $100,000 (admission to the public was free). There was Rubin (Hurricane) Carter's robe, championship belts, magazines, ticket stubs (Dempsey versus Tunney, Philadelphia, September 23, 1926, ringside, $27.50), vintage posters on the walls, scorecards, fight-worn gear and records of every professional fight on Canadian soil. His prize possession was said to be an 80-year-old speed bag platform used by Mr. Ali and Mr. CHUVALO when they trained at the Lansdowne gym for their memorable 1966 fight at Maple Leaf Gardens.
It wasn't all bling. There were also reminders of such Canadian also linked as linked as -foughts as Jack (Rapier of the North) Delaney and George (Little Chocolate) Dixon.
As for the hall of fame, which was founded in 1969 and housed in Florida Jack's Boxing Club since 2000, Mr. HARRELL knew that at around 350 names, the list of inductees was bloated. He talked about starting over and using the space "for guys who really should be there."
Anyway, the mementos now languish in the dark, still in their long, glass display cases, or are crated up, awaiting an uncertain future. "Maybe with Jack's death comes the death of the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame," mused Mr. Jones. "With Jack gone, who's gonna step up to the plate?"
The gym, on the other hand, known for its punishing conditioning program, was the place for Hollywood types to get buffed when they shot in Toronto. Mr. HARRELL whipped actors Mira Sorvino, Chris Penn and Carrie-Anne Moss of Matrix fame into shape for their movie roles. He appeared in a music video with Mr. Ali's daughter, Laila, and served as boxing consultant on the 2000 teen thriller film, The Skulls.
He fought a bit as an amateur and in the service, but claimed he never had the right people behind him to turn pro. Asked who Mr. HARRELL's favourite boxer was, Mr. Jones doesn't hesitate: Sugar Ray Robinson.
While Mr. HARRELL may have been at home amid the thud of heavy bags and the smell of sweat, "he was frustrated with the whole fight scene," Mr. Jones said, referring to the lack of big-ticket cards and tepid interest in the sport in Canada, at least compared to hockey or baseball.
"He didn't get any support from Canadians, the sports world, the media, the other fighters. But his whole life was talking boxing. He really loved the fight game. That was his life, man."
And he never turned anyone away from his gym, especially kids for whom boxing may have meant the difference between a life and jail -- or worse. There were several of those. One of them remained behind after all the other guests had left a memorial for Mr. HARRELL held last month at the Naval Club.
"He was sobbing his heart out," said club first vice-president Norrie MILLEN. "He explained that Jack had taken him off the streets and treated him like a son. He just did not know what he was going to do now that Jack had 'crossed the bar.' It was so moving and had us all a bit weepy that Jack could affect one young life so much."
Jack Raymond HARRELL was born in Tallahassee, Florida, on December 4, 1944, and died in Toronto of pneumonia on March 12, 2006. He was 61. He leaves two sons, J.J., 22, and Eric, 13, and a fiancée, Judith PASHLEY.
