Anyone heard about that 1962 heavywieght title fight when the white trunks guy called the black trunks gay? (he was really gay, but it still ticked him off) and the black trunks KILLED him.

What was it? boxing or MMA?

Could be really sexist here and say womens? :-)) amateur? :-))

Only kidding, but that does sound a bit dodgy, chances are the poor lass already had something wrong with her, possibly without knowing.

The only death I know of was Johnny Owen in 1980 (I think). He went into a coma and died in hospital later when they turned off his life support. I think he was a Lightweight or Bantamweight.

I remember the story about the gay thing. I think he said it at the weigh in and ended up on the slab after the match. There was a fight a few months ago where a woman died. A few years ago there were a couple of guys in lower weight divisions (a Scot being one) who died cos of dehydration (as well as the boxing). I think Barry MacGuigan killed a guy once.

Mentioning Johnny Owen, did anyone see the programme a couple of years ago where his family met the guy he's been fighting. The Mexican came to Wales to unveil a statue of JO.
See how well I block all your
