Carmen Basilio Has Died

Carmen Basilio-April 2, 1927 – November 7, 2012

By Randy De La O

When we talk about old school fighters that didn't know the meaning of the word quit or fighters that never stopped throwing punches, or didn't understand the concept of ducking an opponent, Carmen Basilio is one of the first faces that pop s into the mind of an old school fight fan like myself.

Carmen Basilio passed away yesterday. My condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Champ! You will be missed but not forgotten. Carmen Basilio, a fighters fighter!
