People seem to forget the upset of Chavez sr.

Going into the fight Frankie Randall was seen as an underachiever whose prime years were behind him. He had suffered various out of ring issues including drug addiction problems and was a big underdog. Hardly anyone expected an upset.

He put on a technical masterclass to hand Chavez his first loss.

Long career in the amateurs, followed by a log career in the pros and often fighting top tier talent does take a toll on a fighter.

The price some fighters pay for plying their trade is huge and it sounds like Frankie Randall was one of them with how his life turned out with living with dementia in assisted living and dying at such an early age.


RIP Champ

Boxers always seem to die early, a lot of times not from natural causes.
I supposed getting smacked around the head fifty times every three minutes for twelve rounds at a time doesn't help things. Times this by 40 and that's your answer to a certain extent. Also, though I won't taint boxers' reputations, some of them are wrong 'uns. Still love the lot of them.

Davey Moore run over by his own car, Pernell Whitaker run over at a crosswalk, Hector Camacho shot during a botched drug deal.

Crazy lives that boxers live.

Gatti killed by his wife, Diego in a bike crash, TAPIA just got tired of life basically, never a quitter, his body just gave up on him.

I love this sport so much, I have done for so many years. You take Jorge Paez off of me and I'm straight on suicide watch.

Bought the Hector Camacho (Christian Giudice) book a couple of weeks ago, that's a very good read. Camacho Cool. Not as cool as Jorge Paez though.
