With the deaths of Alexis Arguello and Arturo Gatti getting most of the attention, many didn't notice that boxing lost a former heavyweight contender last week.
Cesar Brion, an Argentine heavyweight that fought Joe Louis, Ezzard Charles, and other top heavies of the era passed away on July 9th.
I have a video of Brion's ten round fight with the great "Brown Bomber".
Brion was trained by Charlie Goldman, and was a stablemate of Rocky Marciano.
Brion died of natural causes. He was 84
