Boxing legends of the Sunset

Hi - folks - Karyn Ann (Salisbury) Bosso here - Outer Sunset gal - 46th and Moraga.

When I was a kid, I remember 2 great boxers in the Outer Sunset. One lived two doors down - on 46th Avenue and Moraga St - his real name was Frank Prideaux - known as Frankie Stetson. My very first playmates in life were two of his kids, Renee and Billy Prideaux.

The other one was Bobo Olsen. I went to Francis Scott Key Elementary with two of his daughters - one of his daughters, Dawn Olsen, was a friend of mine.

More recently, well, back in the 80's - Pride of The Sunset - Pat Lawlor - was a good friend of mine - I'm sure many of you here on these pages know him too - and his brother, the poet, Dennis Lawlor.
