the champ is here

What’s the story behind the name Ringside? An ode to Billy Soose.

In 1941 Billy Soose, an American 3-time Golden Glove boxer won the world middleweight championship. With 34 wins, 13 KOs, 6 losses, and 1 draw he fought 41 total fights. He retired to the Lake Wallenpaupack area, buying a bar and a restaurant named The Lamp Light Inn, a motel across the street, and then a boxing camp in Hawley, PA. Soose served in the United States Navy and is remembered for having a “larger than life” personality, and for being “The Champ”. Ringside was built where the former Lamp Light Inn stood.
