Farewell, Carmen.

It’s been a tough couple of years for boxing losing some of it’s greatest ever fighters and personalities. Unfortunately we’ve lost yet another one, with Carmen Basilio having passed away. We’ve written far too many tributes and obituaries over the course of doing this site, and it’s only coming up on a year since we started it. Sometimes it’s nice just to remember the good times, rather than focusing on a loss. So here we have Carmen taking on world welterweight champion Tony DeMarco in their first meeting. Maybe the finest moment in Basilio’s in ring career and a great fight to boot.
