Never once, have I heard that Fammo was pissed whilst he was running and crossing the road, outside of the Warwick Farm racetrack ...to the best of my knowledge, and I trained at the same gym as him, John avoided and rarely drank alcohol......leading up to that time, in boxing retirement, he was running marathons and doing very well in his times in completion. He was jogging on a road outside of the track in order to maintain condition (for his marathon running) as far as I heard....

Why your cause to denigrate him and say he was pissed? Can you find one news article, that suggests what you describe - to support your theory ? There are hundreds of news articles, but not one I have ever read says that he was pissed.

I know a couple of fighters above mentioned who had genuine health issues that forced their retirement.

..I was in the Commercial Hotel in Charters Towers when Cliffy fought Lovemore Ndou on the Kostya Tsyzu undercard..
..and the dopey ring announcer introduced Cliffy Samardin!!!!...from MT ISA!!!...in NSW!!!!..what the ****???..the pub was goin' off over that..poor old Cliffy was shakin' his head..Mt Isa in NSW for ****s sake..

..anyway I remmember Cliffy goin' life'n'death in the 7th round of that fight and thinkin' to myself that he just passed a major gut test and he was enroute to getting himself a World title shot..

..I got on the piss with him and my mate up in Cairns about 3 years ago (he's cousin of one of my best mates)..he was down to 69kg back then and contemplating a comeback..I'm glad he didn't because he would've ended up losing to someone not good enough to tie his bootlaces in his prime..
..and he's the koolest bloke..a deadset legend..
