FAKE PE Actually, Trinidad has quietly invested his earnings quite well, especially in the real estate field on the Island, Dominican Republic, other Caribbean Islands and in Florida. If you want to buy chickens and fruit I suggest you go to the supermarket b’cuz the only thing that you might “buy” in his gym is a butt kicking!! As a matter of fact if you get there early enough you might be able to get your butt kicked, lips busted and a bloody nose ALL FOR FREE!! LOLPosted February 26, 2014 9:57 am
BLAST Yes, I also heard something of the Thai fighter who is closing in on the 100 wins mark fighting novices. Yori Boy made his mark in the game the hard way. ONE HUNDRED WINS!! Anyway, led by Kid Azteca: 252 recorded fights (birth name Luis Villaueva), other Latino names that I grew up listening to from my Gramps, Dad and uncle were Ceferino Garcia: 163 fights, Cocoa Kid: 245 fights. Baby Arizmendi: 125 fights and Gaspar “El Indio” Ortega: 174 fights. All were Mexicans except for Garcia, who wasn’t Latino (was Filipino) but his name was, and Cocoa Kid, from Puerto Rico, who was a personal friend of my Grampa, from the same home town. My Gramps was sort’a like a local ‘Jimmy Lennon’ ring announcer of his area in the late 1920s-1940s.Posted February 26, 2014 9:41 am
Poto rico In bad shape now they predict it’s the next country try to go bank rupt.
Check the picture this is how to street fight a large bully, get inside his round house and shoot that elbow to his jaw, you can use his own leverage against him as his miss shot arms wrap around you and give you extra shove. And follow with the other elbow if he still standing.Posted February 26, 2014 12:47 am
Yory Boy Campas is one fighter to be revered. I was a John Duddy fan, but that fight was a win for Yory Boy, or at worst, a draw, in my opinion… I had Yory Boy winning the first 5 of 8 rounds, John winning rounds 9-11 to draw even, and round 12 was all Yory Boy Campas.Posted February 25, 2014 7:03 pm

Being an ‘old school’ fan that was once very involved in various aspects of the game, I’ve met and knew many fighters that fought over 100 fights. It was before cable TV, ppv, high profile world coverage media, same day weigh-ins… and all the benefits fighters enjoy today. I saw the hardships, the struggles, taking fights on short notices, often fighting in their opponent’s backyards, getting screwed out of verdicts, sore hands… keeping busy to make a decent income. Some were champs on the downside of their careers, some never were. While others were top contenders reduced to club fighters. My Dad’s buddy Friday Night Fights favorite Gaspar “El Indio” was one & ex-welter champ Luis Manuel Rodriguez was another. Add the unforgettable & very likable 5 time champ Emil Griffith to the list, along with ex-contender Isaac Logart, club fighters Tommy Tibbs, Leo DiFiore along with a few others and of course, Cuban Angel ‘Robinson’ Garcia, a fun guy who engaged in OVER 230 fights!! I enjoyed being in their company, as a youngster and as an adult, hearing their boxing ‘war stories’, opinions and predictions. When they got robbed out of a victory I felt like I got robbed as well. Emil told me of the time he got disqualified in France after his opponent’s manager began to yell “foul” after a obviously clean body shot. The promoter even apologized and offered to bring Emil back the a couple of months later against French champ Max Cohen. Emil said that he avoided going to his opponent’s body but still won NINE out of the 10 rounds on the scorecards of most of the press covering the fight and still only received a loudly protested DRAW! Anyway, getting back to Yori Boy, when I think of HIM I think of THEM. Yep, I thought Campas should’ve retired years ago BUT… ya gotta love the guy and wish him well. He’s probably everything a lot of these pretenders and prima donnas aren’t. GO YORI BOY!!Posted February 25, 2014 4:41 pm
He may be the last fighter to ever win 100 fights. Deserving of much respect.Posted February 25, 2014 1:55 pm
i can recall watching Campas fight in a hotel ballroom about 10 years ago and thinking THAT was his last hurrah(?!). what can you say. the hombre likes to Fight.Posted February 25, 2014 12:31 pm
Love this guy. A real throwback fighter. Should retire soon though.Posted February 25, 2014 11:52 am
