Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini speaks out about biography

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Former World Boxing Association Lightweight champion and Youngstown native, Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini met some hometown fans on Monday.

The former champ spoke at the Park Vista Retirement home. He talked about his biography "The Good Son: The Life of Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini."

"It's based on the book, and other than me and my father, the city of Youngstown is the biggest character in the book," Mancini says.

Mancini says the movie will be in limited theatrical run in August, then on television in November.
