Pernell Whitaker dies after getting hitting by a vehicle.    

Sort of an odd story, but they say no alcohol or drugs involved.

He was my favorite fighter of that era.

Didn't he get robbed in a decision vs. De La Hoya?

Yeah, he had a controversial decision loss to De La Hoya. He even knocked De La Hoya down. It was not the loss as much as how lopsided the judges points were in DeLa Hoya’s favor.


Whitaker had a similar draw decision with Julio Cesar Chavez.

Maybe that was my confusion.  I couldn't convince myself it was De La Hoya and not Chavez.  I thought maybe I was confusing it with Meldrick Taylor getting jobbed to Chavez.

The Chavez fight was just as bad as the oscar one for a decision. With Chavez still undefeated it to me was worse.

His first loss to iirc Jose Ramirez was apparently even worse than those two in terms of bad bad judging. But that's what I have read, I didn't see that fight.

Honestly I was never a huge fan of his but he was a great fighter no doubt.
