Very sad story. Shows what addiction can do to you.

That is a real shame. Gutted for the fella.

I especially remember his fights with Chavez (which was close), Barry Micheal and Harold "The Shadow" Knight back in the good old days of 15 rounders.

I hope he can somehow turn his life around.

i hate to see this for the guy.. he was a good fighter.. i actually have a few of his fights..

WOW what a terrible story to read. So so sad. Lets hope he can get it turned around. Sounds like a good opportunity for the Duvas to help the guy out.
JLUVBABY
i hope his sons have the heart to get him and help him clean up... i know the way his life turned out is on him for the most part but he looks like a guy that can be helped...

Damn that is f*cked up always sad to see a prize fighter end up like that. Rocky was a bad ass he gave Chavez a helluva fight. I hope he gets clean and gets his sh*t together.

The Duva's owe him nothing. He & he alone can choose to get clean & stay clean. He can enter a rehab & do what is required (12 steps daily) for his long term mental & physical health or he can live on the streets & continue to get wasted daily.

Reading that article people are offering him help provided he gets clean. If he genuinely wants to experince recovery he needs to enter a rehab programme & not some BS 30 or 90 day one like Dr Drew but a serious 9-18 months controlled rehab where he if forced to get well & work on himself.
