If you're not familiar with Chico Corrales, he was one of the top lightweight boxers of our time. His most memorable fight came against Luis Castillo in a nail biter that was helmed Fight of the Year in 2005.

On May 7th 2007 he was involved in a fatal motorcycle accident in Las Vegas (where he lived at the time). He had recently come off a KO loss from moving up to Welterweight (where he was visibly out of shape). There were talks about him suffering from depression and alcohol abuse from his autopsy showing he was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Regardless of what demons he was battling in his personal life, he'll always be remembered as a tough fighter who gave it his all anytime he stepped in the ring. Below are some clips from the late fighter.
