That was all Galento had to hear. In the end both fighters had to be hospitalized. Nova said many times then, and in later years, that he never spoke to Galento again, although their paths crossed many times at boxing functions and affairs. Nova was a young man taken to school by a man who had no scruples once the bell rang. Many people believed Nova was ruined in that 21 Boxing in New Jersey, 1900–1999 fight, although he did go on to challenge Joe Louis for the title. It was said he could have been a better fighter had he not fought Tony Galento.

He was very cordial as we shook hands, and he autographed the book I bought from him. He, along with about a dozen other former fighters, were helping Willie Pep, the great former featherweight champion, sell his book, Friday’s Heroes. They were all enclosed in a long wooded rectangular makeshift counter. Each fighter had a large card with his name on it set before him. A fan could walk up, buy the book and have it autographed by the fighters of his choice. On hand were, of course, Willie Pep, also Sandy Sadler, Larkin, Tami Mauriello, Steve Belloise, Freddie Russo, Chester Rico and Joe Miceli, plus more I can’t remember.

Tony did a lot of work in Hollywood, getting small cameo parts in quite a few movies. His best role was in the Academy Award–winning picture On the Waterfront. It starred Marlon Brando, and Tony portrayed “Truck,” a union strong arm. Tony didn’t have to act; he was a truck, and Hollywood pegged him right. Other fighters in the movie were Abe Simon, Tami Mauriello and Lee Oma, quite a rugged crew for hero Marlon Brando to tame. Yes, Two-Ton Tony Galento was a one-of-a-kind character boxing will never forget.
