He was one of Tyson's trainers (against Holyfield).

That's not a real Facebook page though is it? As far as I can tell it's one of those pointless ones set up using information contained in a Wikipedia article.

You seem to be right. I should have looked into it before I posted.

Think he still trains Don King fighters. Was in Larry Donalds corner vs Klitschko in 02 and Oliver McCalls corner vs TOS in 04.

Apparently he had a heart attack in 2007 (see http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=3096310) and I can't find any news about him since then. He'd be about 70 now and perhaps he decided it was time to retire.

He looks really unwell in this video dated March 2007:

I remember Richie from the Delahoya v Leija bout I refereed when the Mercantes and Howie Albert came to him to protest me so Junior or his Dad could get the fight instead of me. He looks wonderful. Best of luck.
