This is why no boxer should ever be disrespected.
They put their lives on the line to entertain us boxing fans.
RIP Top Man, my thoughts are with his family and friends…
Lisa M Sigley I admit to knowing virtually nothing about the sport of boxing, but I still can’t help but wonder why helmets aren’t mandatory, especially given what we know about traumatic brain injury. Not placing blame, but just wondering.
Keith Carey This isn’t meant to be sarcastic, but he went down swinging. He fought to the end! He gave it his all and went out doing something he loved. I’m really sorry for his family, friends and team and the team of the opponent. I know he was feeling serious remorse. RIP PATRICK DAY!
