Boxing legend Pernell Whitaker has died at the age of 55 after being hit by a car.
Whitaker won world titles at four different weights and is considered among the best to have ever laced up a pair of gloves.
According to TMZ, he was hit by a car on Sunday night and later died of his injuries.
Whitaker, nicknamed 'Sweet Pea' won Olympic gold in 1984 before turning professional in the same year.
He lost his first challenge for a world title against Jose Luis Ramirez four years later but won another version two years later against Greg Hauden.
Whitaker then went on an unbeaten run until 1997 when he ran into Oscar De La Hoya before losing two of this final three fights.
