    Where Are They Now & Boy Do I Miss 'em!

    Angel Manfredy-- haven't seen or heard his name in any boxing news for
    a long, long, lonnnng time. Entertaining fighter - comical character.
    Win or lose he'd hold sermon after every bout. Reminding us we had a
    choice- the devil or god? Lol. Sounding half delusional but hilarious.

    Six Head Lewis - I'll be bach, mon! (insert Guyanese accent) as far as
    I know those were his last words on boxing airwaves (shortly after
    Mayorga lit 'em up)... Never to be seen again. I sort of recall a
    story about his uncle being part of terror plot but unsure how true
    that was? I use to chat with his trainer back in the day in the AOL
    boxing chat room. I forget which fight it was but he had me lmfao because
    he was drinking more water than his fighter (made funnier being he was
    a big heavy cat).


    Vernon Forrest-- of course we all know where he ended up but boy do I
    miss 'em. Real heavy heart when I reflect on his death. Some real
    tragic bullshit. Debate his place in boxing history all day long but
    the humanitarian/charitable part of his life was all time great,
    undisputed (annnnd still!). True loss for Destiny's Child Inc (program
    he established for disabled/ underprivileged). Vernon was also the
    first fighter I ever heard talk up Al Haymon (aka The Shadow or the
    Invisible Genius-- the brain behind the Money brawn).


    Anyhow, feel free to add to the list of Where Are They Now And Boy Do I
    Miss 'Em.

    I suspect that if there is a heaven for us after death, that "The Viper" is there. He should be elected in the HOF here in this life next year. Holla!

    The viper is sorely missed.

    What an outstanding human being out of the ring.

    Working with challenged children , what is there that is more honorable in this world?



    I love mayorga he's a crazy person but God bless him he's entertaining.

    I miss the heavyweights of the 90's...Holyfield, Ruddock, Mercer, Lewis, Tyson, Foreman, Morrison, Bowe....I think the last time I got really excited watching a HW fight was the Klitschko brothers vs Sanders and Lamon Brewster vs Sergei Liakhovich.

    The Sander & Brewster bouts were classic upsets (rip Cory). I loved when Lamont asked the rhetorical question ( post fight interview):

    whatcha' gonna do when the rabbit has the shotgun!?!??!? Obviously his way of saying... Now it's me shooting my punches at Wladimir ....how's he going to react?

    Paul Vaden is doing well in his life after boxing. Dude does private training for billionaires at their home gyms in San Diego, County USA.

    Wow! I'd have a ton on my "Miss 'em" list. Nonetheless, here is a bit. Boxers that I miss would be the late Greg Page, Hector "Macho Time" Camacho and the Spirtual men, cut men and trainers would be Drew "Bundini' Brown, Chuck Bodak, Rey Arcel, Eddie Futch, Angie Dundee and Manny Steward. Holla!

    Am totally clueless to Paul Vaden (still plenty of boxing ignorance on my part). Never even heard of the man. Tell me more, Radam, holla'!
