We Were Young Together Once: Roger Mayweather

2

Long before Roger Mayweather became famous for twelve-letter expletives and for discovering A-side Meth, he was a bold case study in hot-and-cold, up-and-down, and what-goes-around-comes-around. With a skull-and-crossbones stitched on his trunks and a right hand that could have doubled as a maul, Mayweather alternated upsides and downsides for the better part of the 1980s because of one simple detail: He owned a chin as fragile as a sparkleball. What made him even more compelling was the fact that he knew it. "Live by the sword, die by the sword," he told KO Magazine in 1988. "It’s the same with Tommy Hearns or anybody else who’s a good puncher. Come to see me fight and something will happen." Read more from The Living Daylights by clicking link above.
