    HOLY SHIT!

    Castillo-Corrales I probably was the best fight I've ever seen.

    RIP, Chico.

    Not the news any boxing fan would want to hear from Vegas. RIP.

    Also, C~T, it's Diego, not Deigo.

    Man, it's so shocking when something like this happens. If there was a boxer who could bring the sport back, it was someone like Corrales, because he went after his opponent ferociously.

    Great fighter.

    Don't care much for that breaking-his-wife's jaw incident, but I've had the pleasure of seeing him fight live twice.
    Both were very good fights.
    You'll never find a more loyal, borderline psychotic fan base, either.

    Sirs, Madames,

    Not the best fight ever, but maybe the best round ever (tho' Hagler-Hearns # 1 would get my vote). But no one ever went from out-of-it to winner faster.

    RIP

    YHS, etc

    Good thing I remembered the thread title, or all this "RIP, Chico" would make me think something happened to Tito Santana.

    Police are saying he was going 100 MPH when he crashed into the back of a car. The good die young. RIP.

    A friend of mine who has been around boxing a long time called me today. He said it reminded him of how James Shuler died a short time after he lost to Thomas Hearns. There was some speculation it may have been suicide. Given how Corrales' last fight went, I wonder if that may have been the case here.
