i hope to meet him before his times comes. hes one of my all time favourites, ive learned a lot from him and still continue to learn.
He was in my local area doing a sit down dinner type of events.

It was great, to be in the presence of such a legend. To hear him tell stories about Ray Robinson and Marcel Cerdan and the likes.

But, he was looking terribely old, struggling to talk, walk, and concentrate. He struggled to eat his dinner and was really slurring his words.

He had to leave early because he was too tired and repeated his "I fought Sugar Ray so many times, It's a wonder I don't have diabetes" a few times on accident. Was funny though, after he said it again, he was like "Have I said that joke already?"

I tried to ask him about Bert Lytell and Holman Williams but I couldn't really get any answers. Still, was amazing getting to meet him.

But yeah, he looked awful. In all honesty.
