R.I.P. DIEGO CORRALES

Boxer Diego “Chico” Corrales was killed in a motorcycle accident on Monday in Las Vegas. The 29 year old two time world champion was speeding on his bike when he crashed into the back of a car. Promoter Gary Shaw:

“He’s laying there as we speak with a helmet on his head under a sheet. It appears he was thrown a great distance.”

I’m not sure why Shaw started with the gruesome part first but he did go on to compliment the fallen fighter:

“He fought recklessly and he lived recklessly. That was his style. He always cared about the fans and gave them their money’s worth. He was a true warrior. He was what boxing stood for, and what boxing is all about.”

In a strange twist of fate, Monday marked the 2 year anniversary of Chico’s defining moment… His 2005 comeback victory over Jose Luis Castillo.

Rest In Peace Diego. You will be missed.
