    im fortunate that my town has the boxing fans to attract a lot of the absolute best to perform here. ive seen many of the legends, some of the best to ever do it, and pea was certainly one of those.

    So sad to hear this. The ironic thing is that he made a living avoiding getting hit and of all the ways to end it, he gets hit by a car. I don't know who has any more details. But this is just a big loss to the boxing world. He was definitely taken before his time but what can you do? RIP Sweet Pea PW. Condolences to his family and friends.
