    My father was a welterweight boxer in fFinland in and around World War Two. He was quite prominent in his class. Might you have information about him? His name was Erich Kari, formerly Erich Blumquist. He was from Estonia and defected from Russian army when they took over Estonia and moved to Finland and joined the Navy and somewhere in that time was a boxer. Any enlightenment would be helpful. We are also trying to find out if he was a Finish citizen. Thanks, Lori and Heidi Kari
