As you said, another time, another place. R.I.P Tapia.
Nice one F, thank you for your input.

You could argue, Sir, for Gatti? He had the same...

...though I still rate Gatti and Corrales as talented.

I wish I had half their talent, F.

He had a fight at the York Hall on Showtime and the place was going nuts, he won in the 1st round did the back flip and that was that. What a fighter, what a shame.

It's not a surprise but it's still a shitter.

Marco Antonia Barrera has TAPIA on his shorts,but it`s to honour his mother whos maiden name was Tapia,but he is called Barrera after his father.It`s got nothing to do with Johnny Tapia

RIP

Can't see much people live a harder life than Johnny and survive it as long as he had.
