Carlos Monzon's post ring career lifestyle makes for incredibly grim, twilight reading that makes one of Marlowe or Jonson's plays look like a picnic.
He seemed to habitually beat the women he loved and eventually got jailed for throwing his girlfriend off the balcony of an apartment at a beach resort. Monzon then threw himself off the same balcony as well. He got 11 years for this and a couple of years before getting parole he died in a car crash.
Agree about Turpin as well.....I went to college in Leamingston Spa and it was almost as if the guy had never existed.
Randy - a former world middleweight king - ended-up wrestling for petty cash in god-forsaken small halls for no-money and finally committed suicide in a transport cafe as a bankrupt and forgotten man. Sad, sad stuff.
