I never knew Marlon Starling was involved in such a tragic fight.
I have been watching boxing since almost 20 years and study the history of boxing since at least 15 years, and I thought I knew all the tragic fights which involved famous boxers. I know about SRR vs Jimmy Doyle, Gabe Ruelas vs Jimmy Garcia, I know that Max Baer, Primo Carnera, Lupe Pintor, Ray Mancini, Sugar Ramos, Ezzard Charles, Jesus Chavez, Bob Fitzsimmons (sparring) and many others were involved in tragic fights.
But I never knew that Marlon Starling was also involved in a tragic fight. Found out today that he was. In his 6th pro fight.
Did you guys know that?
That is strange that I never heard or read that before, even though I read tons of books, spend time in the history section, read lots of boxing magazines.
But I never heard that before. What about you guys?
