on November 18th, 1982?
In case you want me to summarize the article and video for you, two brave and tenacious boxers go at it until Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini stops Duk Ku Kim in the 14th round after a brutal slugfest. Duk Ku Kim collasped into a coma after the match was over, transported to the hospital and then died 4 days laters. Kim's death hit his own mother so hard she committed suicide. The guilt over Kim's death ate up the referee Richard Green so much that he too ended up taking his own life. Ray Mancini was just never the same fighter since Kim's death and even after his boxing retirement, Kim's death still constantly haunts him up to this very day.
