Diego Corrales killed in motorcycle accident.

Diego Corrales, 29, was killed in a motor cycle accident Monday, May 7, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He leaves behind his wife, who is expecting a child, and five children.

Corrales was an old school fighter in the mold of Bobby Chacon and Danny “Little Red” Lopez. He could be knocked down but he always fought his way back. His greatest fight was his first fight with Jose Louis Castillo, where he came back from having been knocked down a few times and on the losing end of the fight, to stop Castillo in the tenth round in what some consider one of the greatest slugfest of all time. It is certainly up there with the best of them. Castillo issued a statement today from Mexico saying "I was very surprised and upset when I heard about Chico. It really is tragic when something like this happens. My heart goes out to his family who I know he cared a lot about. I always liked Chico. We had what I would call as a friendly rivalry when we got into the ring. We had two amazing fights and our names will be linked forever. For me it was a privilege of knowing Chico and being part of such great fights."

He won titles in Super Feather and Lightweight divisions. He fought a losing battle with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2001 for Mayweather’s WBC He was true credit to the sport of Boxing and he will definitely be missed. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace Champ!

The memorial service for Diego "Chico" Corrales, 29, will be on Thursday, May 10th, at 11 A.M. PT, at the Palm Green Valley Mortuary 7600 South Eastern Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89123.

It is really tragic that Diego Corrales died in a motorcycle accident. My deep feel condolence is with his family whom he was always protective about. More no of people are getting hurt or losing their lives in fatal motorcycle accidents these days. Motorcycle accident and mishaps are quite common these days. They can happen for a variety of reasons, and have as many consequences. Some merely cause a few scratches - on the car or to your person, while some are much more impactful - damaging your property and handicapping you - for a decent amount of time. Whatever the impact, determining the cause is an important, actually, THE important part of settling an accident compensation claim. A personal injury lawyer will help you in this respect.
