Olympic gold medallist who won a world title before his he had 20 pro fights.

Totally dominated by tito trinidad and never recovered.Retired like 2 or so bouts after..

Not sure how hes doing these days..He had decent skill but unfortunetly couldnt have the success he did in the amateurs.

Still a olympic gold medal and a pro world title aint a bad level of success.

He is probably not an elite fighter at the peak of the division but he is a lot better than most people think that have jumped on the anti Lacy bandwagon

I remember seeing him in like 2003 or something on his "comeback". Teddy Atlas was training him and he got knocked out by a wide-ass left hook from some bum.
