    RIP Denny Moyer, it's a shame when anyone dies, he sounded like a genuine humble guy from the link, I can't say I've ever saw any of his fights, but respect.

    Also watch the movie trailer that I posted in the original....it is about Denny and his brother Phil (former middleweight contender).

    An interesting note:


    The boxing Moyer boys from Portland, Oregon fought Sugar Ray Robinson four times. Uncle Tommy Moyer lost to Sugar Ray in New York as an amateur. Denny Moyer fought Sugar Ray in New York twice as a pro, losing the first fight on points but winning the second by 7-3 scores on all three cards. Phil Moyer had his chance with the legendary Robinson in a bout in Woodland Hills, California. He too outpointed Sugar Ray, giving the Moyer family a very respectable 2 - 2 record against one of the sport's most famous champions.
