Same could be applied here, Maybe if things were different and Salvador didn't die and went on and found that his weakness was slick southpaws and had loadsa losses to fighters due to the style, he would be remember as the great fighter who was crap against Southpaws.
Not my boy Pancho!
Men like him don't come often in our lifetime. He fought everyone available out there for him, not just bums but the best out there, heck, he even fought with a severely infected gum that he has to fight with one hand just to cover that injury. And that infection led to his death.
People may say whadda couda yada yada, but Pancho really walked the talk and he deserves the kindness history has given to him to be remembered as arguably the ATG flyweight.
