DIEGO CORRALES RUMORS

Diego Corrales and the greatest fights of all time

One of the most beautiful things about the sport of boxing is it’s never-ending material for debate.

Kobe Bryant Says Even If He Isn’t the Same, He’ll Figure it Out like Mayweather

Can head trauma lead to mental illness?

On the night of May 7, 2005, a few friends and I huddled in front of the television set, our fists clenched, hearts pumping, and voices wavering as we watched Diego "Chico" Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo fight in the proverbial phone booth. Forehead to forehead the two gladiators stood, ripping each other to the body and head, each punch thrown with malice of forethought...
