Seeing Ray Leonard late in his career had me heartbroken.

Seeing Conteh fall apart in the second Saad Muhammad fight then almost having a breakdown talking about it on local television.

That's basically how every single round played out for Norris.This is the same Terry Norris that Dana Rosenblatt went into survival mode against.

For me it was Joe Frazier. Watching George Foreman score that first knockdown in Jamaica, and hearing Howard Cosell yelling "Down goes Frazier" repeatedly, I remember thinking that he'd get up and win like he had done before. Watching him go down five more times before the bout was stopped was shocking. He had some good performances after that, but was no longer champion, no longer undefeated, and no longer had that aura of invincibility.

Barrera & Morales for me. This isn't just a reaction to this weekend's fight but it has been sad to see both of these guys decline over the last few years and ship losses against guys who aren't even close to the calibre of Morales and Barrera in their primes. Probably has a lot to do with the fact that I've followed their careers from early on.

It was the Norris one that affected me more. I was younger and thought Ray was invincible.

In terms of in-ring decline? Seeing Tyson pounded on by bums like McBride and Danny Williams sucked.

Seeing Roy Jones Jr. get KTFO repeatedly was really saddening, too.

Watching Pacquiao pummel Oscar De La Hoya was awful to watch, too, especially as a big DLH fan. I like Pacquiao, too, but damn. You know that a prime Oscar would have beaten Pacquiao, and then just to watch him get destroyed was very sad. If it's possible, watching Oscar hit the media circuit to discuss the mess that is his personal life is sad, too. The decline in the ring was bad enough (it was obvious he was a shell of what he once was against both Mayweather Jr. and Forbes), but outside the ring, it was worse watching him embarrass himself, probably just to stay in the spotlight after leaving the ring.
