World Boxing Hall of Fame Inductee

Publicist

Bill Caplan was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame, "Expanded Category," for his 40 years as a publicist for boxers such as Joe Louis, George Foreman, and Lupe Pintor. Caplan reportedly once laid down in front of a car carrying Pintor to keep the World Champion from hastily leaving a press conference. Caplan worked for promoters such as George Parnassus, Aileen Eaton, Don King, and Bob Arum.
