Fullmer saved lives

SHARE Fullmer saved lives

I read the Deseret News article titled "Utah's boxing legacy." When Gene Fullmer was the world boxing champ, I met him in person. He came to my Scout troop to tell us kids not to smoke if we want to be physically fit.

Back then, some celebrities endorsed smoking and said it was harmless. Gene Fullmer and Scout leaders saved lives by telling kids the truth about smoking.
