    I just wouldn't list him with luminaries.
    It is "Favorite" pugilists.

    That was not a good night for him.
    Chavez was an elite and is destined for "one of the greatest" tags.
    Yet Haugen didn't back down from a fight against him in a Mexican Bull Ring. He didn't back away from a fight against Pazienza in Rhode Island.
    He took on Sweat Pea, Boom Boom, Macho and Jimmy Paul, the guy just flat-out loved to fight.

    The only time I ever paid to see him fight was on that big card with Norton. I've only seen clips of his other fights.

    He certainly had balls walking into that arena. 150,000 mexicans screaming for his blood.

    I remember reading that Chavez said he was a dog and deserves to suffer after the fight.
