Phil Tufano Obituary, Phil Tufano Has Passed Away – Death Cause
- Isabella Mia
Phil Tufano Obituary, Death – We learned about the departure of a legend, our much cherished Phil Tufano, with a sense of profound loss and mourning. He performed his first gig with us in 1999, and I can vividly recall it as if it had just happened… Big Phil Tufano, looking like a hit man from The Sopranos… in his white tux, fitting to perfection — calling out names and commands and then staring down people in the audience until they got quiet, because he was the perfect fit for our shows.
We had barely trained cops jumping into brawls and grudge matches, and their coaches were either their sector partners or squad sergeants. The judges were our chiefs with a drink in hand.
According to Bobby McGuire, President of the FDNY Boxing Club, “fighting for years” has been going on between the FDNY and the Irish, and it’s all for a good cause. According to McGuire, the proceeds from the event were donated to BHFH, which he described as “a terrific charity.” “What they do is develop housing that is accessible to those with disabilities and does not require a mortgage for injured soldiers who are returning from war.”
Over the course of their partnership with BHFH, which has lasted for ten years, FDNY Bravest Boxing has contributed more than $500,000 to that organization. Such assistance has been given to other veterans, such as U.S. Marine Corporal Jeremy Kelley, who is being honored this evening. McGuire was quoted as saying to The Wave that “they are going to build him a house down in Florida,” and that during the fight, BHFH would be surprising another Marine veteran with the keys to a property.Alex Tchernavski, pictured in the middle, with his mom and dad.

McGuire revealed that the FDNY has been boxing the Irish for about twenty years, with the site of the ring moving between countries over the course of those two decades. “This is probably about the eighth time we’ve had them over,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of fun with them.””both services provide each other a chance to collect money for charity and respect to their organizations,” said Paul Tierney, a sergeant with the Garda. Tierney commended the event because of this reason. When the Fire Department of New York City battles in Ireland, the domestic charity recipients are typically tied to breast cancer. Since 1922, the Garda Sochána, whose name translates to “Guardians of the peace” in Gaelic, has participated in boxing. According to Tierney, “the Garda boxing club has been alive since the year the force was created,” and he referred to it as “a lengthy tradition in the guard.” And for many people who live in New York, the history of boxing in the Garda continues to be strong. This is because many members of the Garda had brothers and uncles who immigrated to the city and became boxing firefighters or police officers.
