    I have a friend who sparred with him once (He also sparred with Arturo Gatti). I covered his first fight with Serrgio Mora and I interviewed him once. He was a pain in the ass to interview, but it was probably more my fault than his.
    By all accounts, a decent guy.

    Amazing that we have lost some of these people this year, while David Crosby, Ali and Keith Richards, and Abe Vigoda.... soldier on.

    Arguello was the tail end of Ali.

    If we are gonna get picky.

    What a year this has been, in regard to those who have passed, both in sports and mainstream.

    R.I.P Vernon.

    I think the last quote in that story was attributed to the wrong guy. If Gatti actually commented on Forrest's death, that's a huge story in itself.

    Another reason to stay far away from The ATL.
