R.I.P Greg Page.

I remember at one time he was seen as the next Ali. Bags of ability.

Shame.

it was a sad story... it also goes to prove in a very long line of sad stories of how boxing needs to become commisioned... i know that will probably never happen but he could have been saved from himself and the money hungry people that kept/allowed him in the sport way longer than he should have been... he's not the first and he is for sure not the last to have this type of ending... it came close to happening to ali of all people (it is figured he fought his last few fights with parkinsons syndrome, diffrent than parkinsons disease also known as pugilisica syndrome, same thing that finally took the life of jerry quarry).... until boxing is organized like all other major sports its sad to say but we will continue to see this happen in the sport.. greg page while never living up to his exspectaion was a good guy and a fun guy for the sport.. it is sad... and he will be missed.. i wish it could turn out better for all those guys that dont quite make it...

Yeah,I really hope boxing looks into this more and does something about it..

If you watch Ali walk into the ring against Berbick,he looks insanely old and looked like he was having major problems with his body..I really wonder how he even made it through training camp..
