Mancini wuz robbed
He lived a life filled with tumult. May he rest in peace.
Troubled life. May he rest in peace.
I don’t tug on Superman’s cape, I don’t spit into the wind, I don’t mess with bad bad Leroy Brown.......
And I don’t set in a car on a dark street in gang teritory snorting coke.
Nuthin goood can come of it.
Who shot him? Why?
Camacho’s matches with Sugar Ray Leonard, Robert Duran, Oscar De La Hoya and Julio Cesar Chavez were classic.
He could beat the best of them.
Unfortunately he couldn’t discipline himself... he was his own worst opponent.
The most memorable fight of Mancini’s that I can remember is the one he had on CBS against Duk Ku Kim, in which unfortnately, Duk Ku Kim ended up losing his life. It was after this fight, I believe, that boxing changed title fights from 15 rounds to 12 rounds.
