Just saw this video on Wilfredo Gomez. Lots of great footage of his earlier fights and throughout the years. My favorite fighter has always been Felix Trinidad... but I must admit Wilfredo Gomez was better in many ways. When asked to rank the greatest Puerto Rican boxers, most of us Puerto Ricans agree on the top five or six. But not necessarily the order. I believe Gomez's record of consecutive title defenses by knockout still stands to this day.
Sadly, Wilfredo has lacked adequate care in his later years... and I can only hope he's currently being looked after properly.
