Career Review

Mike Gordon was an undefeated amateur boxer who was South Florida's most promising heavyweight prospect in 1988.

Gordon was a member of the North Miami Beach Boxing Club, and had won the Florida Sunshine State Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament's Superheavyweight Championship in April 1988. He was undefeated and was ready for a professional career.

However, on May 27, 1988, at T.J.'s Pawn Shop at 1796 North West 79th Street in Miami, Florida, Gordon was shot in the back of the head and murdered by a robber.

Thus, at age 23, Mike Gordon's life and dreams were ended.
