    One of the greats. If you get the chance, watch him win the World Welterweight Title Tony De Marco and then win the Rematch. A Tough, Tough Man.

    Basilio was a well-respected man who didn't back down from anyone.
    RIP.

    Looks like it could be Tony DeMarco. Carmen sparked him to win the title and then repeated it in the rematch. Tony wasn't about to get up any time soon; he was OUT....

    If it is DeMarco, it's a great photo. Well done to you.
