    Starting at 11 P.M., ESPN Classic will be showing 3 hours of Diego Corrales.

    First, his fight of the year performance vs Jose Luis Castillo. Second, his thrilling fight with Casa. Finally, they will end there show with the Best of Diego Corrales.

    I'm just passing this along to everyone so that we can all watch.

    Personally, I never really watched a lot of Corrales until after his death. I can't wait to see the fights tonight, because I have enjoyed what I have seen of him.

    diego "chico" corrales died 2day 1 year ago, it seems just a short time ago. the article on espn was very good, i got alittle teary eyed. he was great warrior. u just have 2 feel u knew him, by watching him go the battles he went thru. not many of us would want 2 find out what we have deep inside us. no matter how bad it got he always dug deeper & deeper 2 try 2 win his fight. i feel honored 2 have watched 1 of most courageous fighters 2 come along in a long while. rest in peace chico u have not been forgotten. thanks for the memories. god bless you, brother.

    Just turned my tv on and caught the 10th round. Both fighters lost their prime in that fight, but they are now forever immortalized.

    I watched the YouTube of that round and that was one of the best rounds I've ever seen.

    What he did to his wife wasn't good, I'll agree. However, I'm able to separate that from his great fights.

    Most real fans are. Because if you're going to not watch Chico for what he did, you can pretty much forget about watching Tyson or a whole host of other great fighters.

    What he did in his time away from boxing is his business, I don't agree with it, in fact I think it's disgusting.
    But I like him as a boxer, not a humanitarian.
