The exciting statement by Horacio Accavallo Jr.
My old man was always a very loved and respected guy, both by his own and by others. When he walked with him down the street, there was no block where they didn’t stop him to greet him and thank him, as if he had done something for them with his own hands. He was weird.
Over time, I understood who he was and why people thanked him. When Argentine society is hit, athletes and artists are the only ones who give people the chance to rejoice, smile and get excited. For a couple of rounds, they went from hell to heaven.
I began to take each greeting, each congratulations and each hug as a small tribute, which is why I dare to say that my father was one of the most honored Argentines in all of history, and many believe that this series of venerations will never be enough to his figure.
The most recent of those recognitions was offered to me by Mark Arienti, with all your respect and affection to the champion. For those who don’t know him, among other occupations, he works as Vice President of the Boxer’s House and as Secretary of the World Boxing Council.
His idea was that the remains of Horace Accavallo rest in it Pantheon of Argentine Boxers, located in the Chacarita Cemetery. After discussing it with my family, we understood that it does not only belong to us, but to all Argentines.
Our answer was yes. In the coming weeks, we will try to close the remaining details to be able to move the remains of the little giant to Chacarita. In this way, he will rest with his colleagues, he will be the heritage of the town, and he will take care of us from wherever he is.
