    A tough and skilled fighter who was a world champion when it meant something. He would have had fewer losses on his record had it not been for the tender skin around his eyes.

      Very sad, my thoughts are with his family. He was a true world class talent who had a good career but maybe could have achieved even more if he wasn't so prone to cutting. RIP
