Two Dates and a Dash Episode 9: Legendary Boxing Promoter J Russell Peltz

Dubbed “The Boy Wonder,” the 22-year old promoted his first bout on Sept. 30, 1969, featuring Bennie Briscoe in the main event at the Blue Horizon. Since then, Peltz has become one of boxing’s most consistent promoters and is synonymous with Philadelphia boxing and, in particular, the Blue Horizon, where he promoted bouts for 32 years. Peltz also served as Director of Boxing at the Philadelphia Spectrum from 1973 to 1980.
