This legendary boxer died. A ballpark/sportsfield in Charlotte Amalie is named after him.

I saw that. Until now I had never heard of this 1960's boxing Champion from the US Virgins. Interesting and controversial career.

My Dad was a pro boxer in the 1930's and I remember having to watch the Gilette Friday Night Fights in the 60's as I hated it but now am a huge fan. Dad was ranked 4th in the World as a Bantamweight in 1932/33! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" />
