Excuse my ignorance, what fight was that first image from?
I posted these in the othe thread but it fits this one better.
Mancini vs. Duk Koo Kim
Kim died after the fight. The ref killed himself shortly after.. and kim's mother killed herself..very sad
Who's in the two pics after Hearns??
I have to look it back up. But I will find out for you.
The "What could have been" section
Teofilo Stevenson.. greatest fighter ever? We'll never know
Jones going down against Johnson really got to me.

The 2nd picture - Gerald McClellan...I remember watching that fight live with my dad, what an exciting fight at the time. I recently re-watched with a friend who hadn't seen it, it and it's very uncomfortable viewing, knowing the tragic end result. Jim Watt's commentary makes him sound like a right c*nt, but I guess he wasn't to know.
This was just a sad fight for me, especially listening to the Holyfield interview afterwards..
Yeah.. I felt the same way watching the kim fight as well.. knowing the outcome.. that fight really did go on too long though
Realizing it was all over.
Pretty sure that's Savon not Stevenson.
Ok the first is.

Ok I misunderstood the point of the thread. We are put up pics of OUR saddest moments. got it now.
Not really saddest but the most painful fight I have ever seen and have not watch since I saw it the first time.
