Today he died at 89 and Argentina mourns his death, after fighting for 20 days his bronquitis in the hospital.

He was an amateur Heavyweight in Argentina but at 26 years old, he lost a fight to go for the Olympics, and he stop fighting and began teaching and that's how his story began.

Genius of a man, he trained another of my favourite boxers in Miguel Lora as well.

RIP, thoughts go to his family.

El Happy Lora an amazing defensive boxer one of my favorites too, a shame he is not that well known by the boxing community, maybe because he is Colombian.
