Yet another great boxer goes in the last 10 months. I mean really Pep, and Patterson died over night, Berbick got his head chopped off by hiss nephew, TYson will probably go to jail again under charges of a DUI and possesion of cocaine, Ali isn't talking very well at all... 06, a sad year for the old boxing greats.
