I FORGOT to add, I will dig out my DVDs of these bouts and also his bouts with EL FLACO D’EXPLOSIVO and Arturo Frias as well. I reckon he would at least have a go with the likes of ADRIEN BRONER if THE PROBLEM stayed at Lightweight and BOOM BOOM was around.

He only lost to the best guys (okay, he lost to HAUGEN, but hey?!?

I REMEMBER watching both fights with the Dreadlocked Warrior. BOOM BOOM will always be one of my favourite fighters… I only wrote on here last week, how he was one of the first fighters I got behind as they regularly showed his fights on World of Sport and I thought he always gave 100%.

The Bramble fight showcased his guts. Bramble just had too much for him in their first encounter and Boom Boom refused to give up in a thrilling, but ultimately valiant attempt to retain his title.

I still have a lot of time for Ray and I’m glad he does color commentary and occassional stints on ESPN’S great fights of yesteryear…..
