RIP Diego Corrales

Former Lightweight Champion Diego Corrales was killed in a motorcycle accident last night at the age of 29. For the non-boxing fans here, to get an idea of just how great Chico was in the ring, just check him out in the final round of his epic fight with Jose Luis Castillo, which happened exactly two years before his death. I had posted this same clip back in February when this site first started, and I can still say with confidence that this was the best boxing match I have ever seen.
