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
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.
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!
