legendary commentary, howard cowsell (the best boxing commentator of all time in my opinion) died of a heart attack on this day in 1995. his later years were not kind to howard, he was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1991 and had to undergo surgery to remove the tumour, he had several minor strokes, was diagnosed with heart and kidney disease and parkinson’s disease.
cosell died at a hospital for joint diseases in manhattan on april 23rd 1995, age 77, of a cardiac embolism.
