Diego "Chico" Corrales Dead At Age 29

Very sad news to report as Diego Corrales was pronounced dead due to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident Monday evening.

"Chico" was an all-action fighter who had memorable fights with Joel Cassamayor and Jose Luis Castillo.  His in-ring record was 40-5 with 33 knockouts.

Most boxing fans know of Diego's trouble with the law outside of the ring, but this is not a time to reflect on the bad in his life, but a time to remember him as a great boxer and by all accounts a good father.

He is survived by his wife and three children.

RIP Diego.  You will be missed.
