A few weeks shy of their first anniversary, the Boys of Summer, 1984, will return to your TV screen. Next Saturday, Olympic gold medalists Pernell Whitaker, Mark Breland and Meldrick Taylor, and bronze medalist Evander Hollyfield, will take to the airwaves for another ABC-TV reunion, this one expected to generate no less interest than the others.
