Two-division champion and 2005 International Boxing Hall of Fame enshrinee Bobby Chacon, whose dramatic late-career heroics resulted in back-to-back Fights of the Year against Rafael “Bazooka” Limon and Cornelius Boza-Edwards, died Wednesday morning at age 64.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, Chacon fell and struck his head in a Hemet care facility and died of his injuries.

Who can forget Chacon-Limon 3...Gave great value for money did Bobby but unfortunately the wars took there toll...Like Jerry Quarry he took too much punishment and was a shell in his last few years...

But he's gone now so he can be remembered as the top fighter and credit to the sport he was...

He'll be missed...RIP..

He fought Arguello, Mancini, Danny Lopez, Chucho Castillo, Alfredo Mercano and Ruben Olivares three times. Bazooka Limon and CBE fights were crazy.

Made Gatti look like Sergio Mora.

So true haz his classic with Limon one of my favourite fights ever.

Another Johnny-Five who ended up in difficulty but I can imagine that anyone still alive who saw him fight live will raise a glass to a true warrior and entertainer

RIP
