Guy was a true warrior,wih a simply horrific family background,someone should make a film about him,though it may be to hard to take,what with his drug abuse and vicious fights he had.

a real charachter and very entertaining fighter.he had a great chin and was very fast,good jab and when he wanted he could be very elusive.
i think he was robbed against Ayala(at least in the second fight he was)and would have loved to see him against Mark Johnson.
could have been more than he was if it wasnt for is outside the ring troubles.
