II was about to say I hear Ray Leonard isn't too nice of a guy. Blows his fans off, etc. That's his choice.

Carter came to the U K to fight Harry Scott ,in a fight promoted by Mickey Duff.Duff ,met him at the airport,Carter handed, Duff,one of his bags ,they cam e through customs,later,in the hotel room as Carter unpacked ,Duff spotted a handgun in Carters bag,he remonstrated with Carter,telling him it was a serious crime to bring a handgun into the UK,Carter calmly replied,"I didnt bring it in ,you did",this story is in Duff,s autobiography ,"Twenty and Out", an entertaining read.

Meaness is accepted in Boxing, as a matter of fact it is an admired quality. Lyle was a guy who did heavy time, got stabbed and almost died in prison and he had a dark side, the fight was proberly over some punk who was his bitch and someone elses too, Lyle was a jail bully,Hurricane Carter was raised in reformitorys and did a lot of time, had a bad start but stayed a criminal(thug) and do you think the cops framed him,Bob Dylan did. Tony Ayala was a sick guy, I admired his killer instinct and come of the floor attitude in the ring but he had a dark, dark side outside the ring and wanted to hurt woman, a punk at heart.Tyson had a bad disrepect for woman but was dumb with broads and drugs. Stanley Ketchel was killed messin around with the wife of another man, Ketchel was real good with his hands so the guy used an equalizer and Stanley was done. Liston was close to Frankie Carbo (they say) but Sonny also liked Heroin and used it all his life. Pinklon Thomas was a Junkie, got himself off it for a while but then went back on it before the Berbick fight, shame on Pinklon. Frankie Depaula got shot and left in the streets, people say it was because he was a snitch (rumours?)Emile Griffith was always in gay clubs dressed like a woman and liked young men, his mother was manly looking looked like Sam Peter but Griff was a tough fag. Jerry Quarry, Gerry Cooney, liked there booze and would be seen in bars pretty drunk, but Gerry frquented the bathroom a lot for a sniff of cocaine and Jerry Quarry admitted he added Coke to drinking before the Norton fight instead of training, Panama Lewis the trainer, gave coke to Pryor(black bottle in the Alex Aguello fight and took the stuffing out of Louie Resto gloves before his fight with Collins (the loss caused Collins to drink and drive and he was killed because of the depressed drinking and driving. Rocky Graziano and Jake Lamotta were in Reform school as kids together(must have been a rough school) but they changed for the better(Rocky found a nice jewish wife but Jake was in the darker shaddows longer ( Jake was disliked by the Mob early in his career until he let Billy Fox beat him along the ropes, then he got a title shot. there were others like Ricky Womack,Cliff Etiene,Irish Bob Murphy, but there were also a lot of guys that used the ring to get them out of bad neiborhoods and rough starts to make something of themselfs, a lot more of those storys than the bad ones, Boxing helped give many a big jump start that life otherwise would have not.

Collins suffered partial blindness, depression, and later got drunk and drove his car in a ditch in what may have been suicide.
