Diego Corrales dies in motorcycle accident

Horrible news for fight fans.
"Chico" was in decline from many tough fights but he gave me the best fight I ever saw. His first battle with Jose Luis Castillo is something I will never forget.
It's a sad day.

There was one point and time when this guy was the second coming. The 1st Castillo fight was amazing.

I remember when he fought Mayweather, he was so big at the time ... he wasn't even much of an underdog. He lost, then his career went into a mini tailspin IIRC. He got back into contention, and then faltered again as of late.

Sad news. This guy was one of the best for about a 4-5 year stretch, and he was involved in some great fights.
