    Default Juan Roldan passes away

    Juan Roldan has died, of complications caused by Coronavirus.

    A genuinely teak tough, rambunctious brawler in the best traditions of his country. He followed in the boxing footsteps of people like Luis Firpo.

    I remember watching him inflict the only knockdown of Marvin Hagler career (even though it was a kidney punch and then a push😀).
    He gave Marvin all sorts of problems before he was thumbed. He brawled with Tommy Hearns and Micheal Nunn as well.

    Tough as old boots. The article below says he bought the farm where his dad used to work as a farmhand, enjoyed the good life and was a kind and generous guy.

    One of the good guys, never in a boring fight. Rest in Peace champ.

    R.I.P. Juan Roldan.

    In one of the few generalizations I make in boxing, Argentines for the most part being heavy-handed knockout punchers is one of them. Roldan was one of the earliest in my memory.

    Remember Roldan taking on the frightening Thomas Hearns for a middleweight title and taking a fearful beating. He even rocked Hearns and hurt him before being knocked out in the 4th round. One tough man!

    Later found out he was the only man to put Hagler down, but as X wrote, it was more of a trip.

    RIP Roldan, you gave us some good memories.

    If there was a poster boy for fighters from Argentina Roldan would be that one. Two handed free thrower he was built like a redwood, knew one style and a very hard nail. He earned his way to huge showdowns with legends like Hearns and Hagler. Beat Kinchen before Kinchen went on to give Hearns all he could handle and dame near killed Frank Fletcher in a wild scrap. RIP Champion
