Whitaker came onto the boxing scene as an amateur in the 1984 Olympics when he won a gold medal. The American, affectionately known as "Sweet Pea" during his fighting career, was hit at an intersection in Virginia Beach on Sunday night. An examination concerning the traffic occurrence is continuous, yet the driver remained at the scene. By 1988, he stirred his way up to his first world title shot, losing by split choice to Jose Luis Ramirez.
Four of the other six bouts ended in defeat and he also had one draw and one no contest. For fans of the sweet science, Pernell Whitaker was a joy to watch.
His style was unique and effective, a hit-and-don't-be-hit strategy that was later adopted by a rising young fighter named Floyd Mayweather Jr. Chavez stalked Whitaker throughout the fight, but Whitaker wasn't there to be found for the most part, and when he traded punches with Chavez he seemed to get the better of the Mexican.
The Cuban was headed to a stunning surprise after twice dropping Whitaker, yet Pernell revived to violently thump Hurtado through the ropes in what was else one of the most strangely late refereeing stoppages youll ever observe.
"R I P champ, one of the best fighters to ever do it", he wrote on Monday.
