Kid Hersh

Published

on

Samuel “Kid Hersh” Rosenberg was born and raised in the upper Midwest. Always having a knack for boxing journalism he was hooked on the sweet science the second he laid eyes on Marvin Hagler via an old, dusty VHS tape. This was further fueled by learning about his grandfather’s decorated amateur career cut short by WW2. Seeking more boxing by the day, Kid Hersh now lives to hit the gyms to get the latest scoop and attend events, whether big or small. If it involves boxing, the Kid doesn’t want to miss it.
