With two straight weekends of middleweight fights coming up, Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio recalls when one of boxing's most historied divisions seemed to be cursed. It's not that we would wish anything bad on David Lemieux or Curtis Stevens -- or Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs, for that matter. But many great fighters, and even some who were simply notable, met early ends as middleweights.
The tales of Harry Greb and Stanley Ketchel are fairly well-known in boxing circles, but what about the tales of Marcel Cerdan, Charles "Kid" McCoy, Tiger Flowers and more?
This week, KGB Radio has Compubox operator Aris Pina and writer/historian Patrick Connor to walk you through it all.
