Most have already been mentioned.
Alan Minter, Jess Willard and Marlon Starling were also involved in tragic fights.

The one I remember the most was watching Chris Calvin knockout Shawn Thomas on ESPN and Thomas hit his head on the canvas and never recovered. There is actually a video from just a couple years ago on YouTube where Calvin discusses the effect it had on him personally and how it derailed his passion for boxing.

I was talking about the incidents which happened on the highest level or let's say Hall of Famers or famous boxers were involved.
Of course it happened hundreds of times.

Beat me to it, scar. Jose Blanco and Moore. I was going to start a thread on Moore vs Ramos actually. Brilliant but tragic fight. All action but with some amazing skill on display, mostly on the offensive side with terrific punch resistance and recuperation too. Great talents, both of them.

I can't really watch the end of fights like Owen-Pintor and Griffith-Paret, but this one is worse in it's own way. Moore seems ok, all compos mentis and everything and even gives that poignant little post-fight interview. Ramos had called him a great champion and wanted to give him a rematch I think. Then the poor bloke just collapsed in his changing room holding his head, and that was it. Awful.

The freaky thing about the SRR v Jimmy Doyle tragedy is that Robinson had a dream in the week leading up to the fight that he killed Doyle in the ring and was so deeply disturbed that he had to be talked out of pulling out of the fight by his team - thats just some shit that cant ignored or written off as coincidence .

Leotis Martin killed Sonny Banks, twho was the first man to knock Clay down in a professional fight.

Willie James killed Ed Sanders, 1952 Olympic heavyweight champion, in a pro fight in 1954. (James was KO'd in 2 rounds two months later by Bob Baker and retired from the ring).

I remember a popular welterweight in Britain called Rocky Kelly killed a fighter called Steve Watt in the mid-1980s.

Did any of these guys actually die in the ring? More or less instantaneously or immediately after the KO?
