Virginia Beach is a real hole. 

Because nobody ever gets hit by cars anywhere else

He was a truly special talent.  Like many former fighters,  he struggled a bit with life after boxing but he seemed to be on a good track in recent years and he was doing some good work with younger boxers. May he rest in peace.

May he meet up with Willie Pep in that great boxing ring in the sky, and put on a defensive masterclass for the ages!

 He was a great boxer, but nowhere near as great of a humanbeing. Drugs consumed his life. To think about as good as he was, he was a full blown addict for the majority of his career.

Tito (Trinidad not Melon Head) beat him nearly dead. RIP, but he had a good run considering.

Pernell was in the midst of a full blown coke freakout while Trinidad was a killer who was laser focused and training like a maniac. I'm not saying Felix wouldn't have starched him anyway,  but Pea was clearly not himself that night.

I know. That wasn't my point though homey. He took a drubbing and definitely got brain damage.
