Great, more negative publicity....RIP, on a sidenote I would hate to be the guy he fought before his death, cant imagine how I would feel if my opponent died right after I fought him

For the life of me I can't remember who but there was a high profile death in boxing during the 80's and the boxer who "killed" the other guy, his life became a wreck.

Anyone remember what I'm talking about?

Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan. He didn't die, but had brain damage after the fight, coma, blood clot, etc. That might be the one you are thinking of, but there have been a few boxers to die after the fight.
