Sad news. RIP.

'The Truth' was actually a pretty 'big' name in his heyday. Anyone remember those Carl 'The Tooth' Williams skits?

Should have been heavyweight champ, beat Larry Holmes and got totally robbed. Cancer at 54. A shame, he seemed like good guy. He was very talented, one break, and he would be talked about a lot more on here.

The Retired Boxers Foundation is reporting that he passed away from cancer.

RIP to the Truth. Very exciting Heavyweight from the 80's.


RIP to Carl.
