Default Re: Willie Classen 'Forgotten Warrior'

Just a horrible scenario all the way around. Classen shouldn't have been in the ring to begin with; and given the fact that he had absorbed a nasty beating throughout the fight, there's no way that he should have been allowed to continue as long as he did.

If I recall correctly, the whole affair was sordid enough that reporter Gerry Morgenstern never covered boxing again.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to remember that Classen was a pretty reasonable fighter for a while, Pepe. He deserves that much, at the very least.
