In addition to covering boxing for the newspaper, he did stints as beat writer for the Knicks, college basketball and horse racing.
Nat has also published two novels, "Stinger" and "The Zukovka Experiment," and written three plays that were performed in showcase in New York and Los Angeles -- all of which he directed and acted in.
