14 Rounds to Death – 11/13/1982
By K. Thor Jensen
  Boxing is, by nature, a violent sport with potentially damaging consequences. But no fighter ever went to the ring with a fatalistic attitude like Kim Duk-Koo. The Korean boxer was up for the fight of his career against Ray “Boom-Boom” Mancini is Las Vegas in 1982. Kim, however, didn’t think much of his chances, writing “Live or Die” on his lampshade and even having a miniature coffin delivered to his room. When the fight started, the underdog Korean handled himself well, but as it wore on, Mancini gained the advantage. Boom-Boom won by TKO in the 14th round, and Kim lapsed into a coma right there on the mat. Four days later, he died. Tragedy continued as Kim’s mother took her own life three months later. Shortly after that, Richard Gree, the referee of the match, also committed suicide.#thetrainer #hoodriver#personaltrainer #functionaltraining #functionaltrainer#rusticparkour #psychology #muaythai #fitness #functionaltrainer #health #running #fitnessaddict #workout #cardio #mma #training #healthy #parkour #boxingfunctionaltrainingclubhoodriver #columbiarivergorge #active #strong #motivation #determination #lifestyle #getfit #fatloss #fatfighters7 #boxing
