Jack Fiske, who wrote about boxing for more than 40 years for the Chronicle and was inducted into Boxing’s Hall of Fame, died Tuesday (Jan. 24) after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease at age 88. “Jack Fiske was a brilliant writer,” longtime referee Arthur Mercante told the Chronicle. “He said what he wanted to say under no uncertain terms.”
