MEMORIAM

images THIS IS A NEW PAGE ABOUT YESTERYEAR BOXING /BOXERS.

SO LETS START WITH THE DEATH OF PERNELL (Sweet Pea) WHITAKER IN A CAR ACCIDENT.  I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT ICONIC RING MAGAZINE COVER, WITH THE GOLD  MEDALIST,PERNALL WHITTAKER, EVANDER HOLYFIELD, MELDRICK TAYLOR, MARK BRELAND, AND HENRY TILLMAN  FROM THE 1984 OLYMPIC GAMES FROM LOS ANGELES.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF GREAT AMERICAN OLYMPIC BOXERS!! ALL WENT ON TO BE WORLD CHAMPION EXCEPT TILLMAN (Mike Tyson was kept out of olympics by Tillman). WHITAKER WAS ALWAYS GREAT TO WATCH .    SEEMS TO BE A END OF A ERA.

LEON SPINX DIES AGE 67

OLYMPIC AND WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION DIES OF CANCER.ONLY HE AND HIS BROTHER MICHAEL EVER  HELD BOTH  .HE BEAT MUHAMMAD ALI IN MASSIVE UPSET IN ONLY HIS 8th PRO FIGHT IN 1978.

ALWAYS A BIT OF A VICTIM OF LACK OF DEDICATION, THAT WAS TO BE IS DOWNFALL THROUGH OUT IS CAREER,WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERESTING TO SEE HOW GOOD HE COULD HAVE BEEN !!!
