      wow. I think I remember his story done on HBO show with Bryant Gumbel. It was about him and another fighter, and their fights against adversity.

      I think of MMA fighter Mark Kerr. He was on top, then started abusing pills and never could get IT back...

  • R.I.P. to the boxer who just passed. The interviewer was one of the worse I've seen.

  • I feel bad for the guy's difficult childhood.
    But his continued troubles into adulthood all seem to be self-induced.

  • I loved watching this guy fight in 1989-1990 when he was working his way up the ladder. His personal history was well documented back then,and it was obvious back then that this guy's life would be like a comet...it would flame strong for a brief period of time, then flame out. I'm surprised he lived this long. But much respect to this man who battled through so much tragedy and made himself a boxing legend!
