    Bobby Chavon, Boza Edwards, Marvin Johnson, Ray Mancini, Tex Cobb, Jake Lomatta, all were limited skill wise. ( With exception of Chacon who's personal demons and drugs is where he lost a step) but everyone came back after devastating defeats and continued on . All with exception of Cobb and Lomatta whent on to win a championship.

    Speaking of demons .. How long was Tapia in the can. And to win titles after ..


    "Johnny Tapia, a prizefighter who won world titles in three weight classes in a chaotic life that included jail, struggles with mental illness, suicide attempts and five times being declared clinically dead as a result of drug overdoses."

    his fight with vince phillips on FNF was phenomenal and I think it broke a compubox record for 10 round fights around the time Cristobal Cruz and Orlando Salido broke the 12 round record

    Feliciano was so fun to watch and just brought it. One of those fighters who isnt a born athletic talent but you can tell he got where he was in the gym and pushing himself. Was a fan of his when he was active

    Got to agree.
    You have to be determined to be a fighter but to fight with one arm takes a lot more! Respect!
