One of the most excting fighters ever to set foot in the ring, even in defeat went out on his sheild, was in 2 ring magazine fights of the year, against limon and edwards which were both classics, the fight aginst limon is one of the most brutal fights I have ever seen. Also Was a former wbc feather and super featherweight champion, won ring comback of the year in 1982. Was inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame, in June 2005.

Just a heads-up for those that don't know...

The fight the TS referenced beat out Arguello-Pryor I for The Ring's fight of the Year in 1982.

I wish Bobby Chacon all the best. Last I heard, he was really suffering from the effects of all them shots. He was a true warrior.

Yes he was a great one to watch. I remember the year he fought Boza Edwards and Bazooka Limon. Two of the best fights I ever saw.
