Cool Who remembers Tony the Tiger Lopez

If I'm not mistaken this kid won a medal in the Olympics for the US in either Soeul or Barcelona (88 or 92).
Am I the only guy that remembers him?
I also really liked Miguel Angel Gonzalez... where are these guys now?

Here is a great interview with Lopez. Tony was one of the best boxing interviews ever.

A very exciting fighter out of Sacramento. His battles with John John Molina were classic. If you ever are looking for a good fight to watch, check out his war with Greg Haugan.

Lopez won a professional title in '88, and was never a part of any American Olympic boxing team.

Yeah, was a very fun fighter. Got a few interesting decisions in his hometown as a local star. His first fights with Molina and also Thobela (who himself had one of the surprisingly great achievements of becoming a lightweight champion, then moving up to become a champion at 168 pounds!) should have gone the other way.

Whatever else though, his fights were usually very fun and he always came to fight, though he had that strange thing of always having hard fights when some of them should have been easy. Always fought down to his opponent.
