Bert Randolph Sugar, Dead at 74

In MemoriumBert Randolph Sugar was 74. He was a legendary boxing writer and historian, and one of the sport's most iconic characters.

I always loved his appearances on Prime Time Sports. The man knew boxing and knew how to tell a story like no other.

Very sad. I loved listening to Bert Randolph Sugar when he was on with Bob and Stephen on PTS, as we had three heavyweights who all know boxing inside out. Yeah, an amazing storyteller. A legend has been taken away from us too early.

Thought he was older, quite a character with his own shtick. It's sad when icons pass away and you wonder if there are other 'characters' out there to take their place.

This really is sad. He was one of my favourites.

Yes, Bert Sugar on PTS with Bob McCown and Stephen Brunt was the best. When I learnt this sad news, I wondered who would take his place. Who else could talk boxing the way Bert could?

He made boxing interesting to non-boxing fans, and that's saying something.

Bert was an icon. The revelations he made in and outside of boxing with McCown were priceless. R.I.P. Mr. Sugar.

So true. Never cared about boxing, but always liked hearing his stories on Prime Time. Hey by the way, wasn't he on the show just last week?

Loved Bert Sugar on PTS. The best guest Bobcat ever had.
