RIP.

Toughness is definitely the first thing that comes to mind when talking about Basilio.

Rest in peace, champ

He's probably chasing Robinson all over the afterlife right now, trying to kick his ass

RIP to Basillo, to stand out as such a tough guy in one of the deepest eras in welterweight history is praise worthy to say the least. One crazy thing that always stood out to me about Basillo' s career is the fact that nearly half of his career bouts came against guys that he fought more than once. Phone Post

One of my all time favorites. A guy who put the fight in the word fighter.

Yeah, IIRC, he didnt seem to be punchy at all. Amazing, considering how tough is career was.

RIP.

Awesome fighter. Think he literally had an unusually big heart.

He was the smaller man fighting Robinson and still beat him. One of my favourites
