Roger Mayweather passed away. Only 58, but he's been in a bad way for some time, so hardly a surprise. Definitely fought on way too long and paid the price. I remember an interview around 10 years ago where he said that between the diabetes and the quantity of fights, he had no expectation of a long life and accepts that his health had been compromised. Really good fighter, I really enjoyed his bout with Pernell Whitaker. Those Chavez fights couldn't have been good for him or his career though.

Makes you wonder how much Floyd Sr has left. Nowhere near the career in the ring that Roger had, so didn't sustain that punishment, but he's much older and doesn't seem in the best condition either.
