He was pure entertainment mixed with a champion's tenacity...he had a very respectable title run before Tony Lopez closed the show on him. I couldn't believe the 15 round decision over Calvin Grove...all those late kds...I screamed myself hoarse before the tv.I've got pretty much every one of his fights that I could get hold of. He was fucking brilliant.
He morphed boxing talent, fun, circus, entertainment all into one. He wasn't perfect (which boxer was?) but fuck did he give you value for money.
Amazing, amazing talent. I only wish I was old enough and around the fight game when he was in his prime. I'd have been all over it.
