    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.

    Very sad, he was always fun to watch. He's had tons of trouble over the years hopefully he is finally at peace.

    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.
