For those who haven't heard, boxing lost one of the sport's best trainers yesterday. Benton, a former top middleweight from the 60s, helped guide the careers of many of the great fighters of the 80s and 90s including Pernell Whitaker, Meldrick Taylor, Evander Holyfield, Mike McCallum, Bennie Briscoe, etc.

RIP to a great trainer.

The US is losing a lot of the old time boxing men, sadly. And we aren't replacing them with understudies or apprentices.
