rarely does he get a mention here in the history section, what are your thoughts on Bobby Chacon who was one of the greatest value-for-money fighters of all time, Chacon was willing to lay his life on the line in the ring, his legendary battles with Limon, Boza-Edwards, Olivares are as good as any fights in boxing history, 15rd wars of attrition.. What a Fighter Bobby Chacon was`

Very entertaining fighter. One of my favorite actions fighters of all time along with Mancini, Gatti, Saad.

I think his fight with Danny Lopez gets overlooked as being an absolute classic along with his fights with Boza and Limon. I actually thought his first fight with Edwards was every bit as good as the second.

Olivares seemed to have his number though, he managed to beat Olivares 3rd time but that was when Olivares was past his best.

Would of liked to seen him step up and fight Mancini sooner because that would be a tremendous fight, he was past it when they did actually fight.

Excellent fighter to watch.

Just watched his FOTY with Limon again. Chacon was a warrior in every sense of the word. He gave 100 percent every time he fought. His two wars with Boza, four with Bazooka and his classic fight with Little Red are IMO among the 100 greatest fights of all time. Olivares had his number, as he was completely dominated by him.

One of the most excting fighters of all time

i totally agree with you, what a fighter he was, Bobby was willing to lay it all on the line in the ring, it is so sad that he is suffering mentally & physically for it today

He is one of a very select few fighters that can bring that much drama and excitement into the ring each time, the guy was just amazing.
