But Boynton was once an actual pugilist, and later this month, he’ll be inducted into the New Jersey Amateur Olympic Boxing Hall of Fame.

Over an 11-year career that ended in 1984, Boynton, now 63 years old, compiled a 14-14-2 record as a super welterweight. He later retired from the borough’s public works department.

Above, Boynton showed the council a poster touting a 1977  fight last week, when he was congratulated on his impending induction. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge.)
