I don't know a great deal about the man, but from what I've read of his life and upbringing, his managing to accomplish anything is a testament to what a fighter he was, period. People are entitled to feel however they like about the sport of boxing, but the reality is that for some people who have been through such personal hell there is no more realistic prospect to make something positive of it all, if only for a time. RIP.
Rip, but as ya said not really surprised, this was gona happen sooner rather than later sadly
Well this just messed my day up!!! RIP, genuinely one of my favorite fighters to watch over the years.
Very sad, he was always fun to watch. He's had tons of trouble over the years hopefully he is finally at peace.
Rip Johhny. day.

I can explain it.
But I cant understand it for you.
Not surprised, but truly sad news.
The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be
The guy had a lot of demons, RIP Johnny Tapia.
yep - sad news but hardly the biggest shock
RIP Johnny T
Don't bully fat kids - they've got enough on their plate
RIP Johnny. He was 1 of the reasons why I love boxing.
Well this sucks.
Warriors like Tapia seem to burn the candle at both ends, God knows his childhood was a living hell.
He loved to fight and I think lived to fight. After his career was over, well I don't think he adjusted to retirement or accepted it.
R.I.P. you crazy bastard.
"You knocked him down...now how bout you try knockin me down ?"
I loved watching Tapia. Utter loon. Brilliant.
3-Time REIGNING and DEFENDING SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION. First Ballot Hall of Famer. Fact.
RIP Johnny Tapia.
