Tough guy who led a very tough life from a very, very young age. I am not surprised by this, but the expectation doesn't lessen the sadness.

There you have it. If it happened 10 or 15 years ago I wouldn't have been surprised either, but it makes me feel like hell anyway.

DAMNIT. It was just a matter of time. Fair weather fans knew him as the guy with Jesus tattooed on his chest. One of my favorites.

Me and a lot of my fellow fight fans in the uk had alot of time for JT he had a great reception over here. Just another pointless waste. Thanks for the boxing memories fella.As my avatar shows l always been a fan. Some will criticise but to me he was just a gutsy fighter albeit a tragedy waiting to happen. Just a sad sad story and in this sport there are so many.
