The Tip Post
He has been to the top, as boxing’s World Welterweight Champion. And the bottom, as a convicted felon serving three years in San Quentin. Somewhere in the middle, he has run for governor, started several businesses, seen his daughter become a famous model in Paris, and partnered with a former Survivor producer to develop his own reality series. Above all, at the age of 49 — the oldest boxer ever licensed in California — after a decade away from the ring, Paul Nave says he is headed to the top again, having scored three improbable wins last year as part of a near-impossible bid to reclaim his championship belt. Needless to say, Paul has stories. And, odds are, they’re better than yours and mine. And he’s going to tell them as part of a knockout appearance at Duncan/Channon’s Toast of the Tip.
