    I think you can expect some excellent tributes, William. I'm guessing there'll be plenty of evidence you chose your hero well.

    Good to see Carlos reach a good age. Perhaps @ChrisJS will give us some more insight as I believe he knew Carlos and his (apparently delightful) wife.

    Very good fighter indeed and by all accounts a credit to himself and the sport. Respect.

    Bless him Oh Lord and receive his soul,
    I met him and his wife in 2006 at my grandfather's Induction...

    he was a bit before my time, but I have seen a few of his fights, a hard tough fighter that is for sure. Mercy.

    R.I.P. One of the best Lightweights of all time seemed like a great guy too

    Rest easy champion. Hard parts over. Bless his family. He got what we all have dreamed of at one point or another. Maybe some of us still do? Anyways...
