So long Hank Kaplan!

He knew Cassius Clay, Rocky Marciano, and was a mother Theresa of sorts for Miami great Kid Gavilan.

Now boxing historian Hank Kaplan is gone, and it's formally the end of the Muhammad Ali era in Miami.

Santos Perez did a good piece on Hank in this morning's Herald, but the best thing written on the guy was Kathy Glasgow's 1998 profile in New Times.

Bye, Hank. The sweet science will be slightly bitter for me and others because of your absence.
