    Michael Dokes died of liver cancer at age 54.

    He was a former WBA champ with tremendous handspeed. He had drug problems, but got his act together and got into fantastic shape for an awesome war with Evander Holyfiled, one of the best fights you'll ever see. He probably won more fans in that loss than in all his prior wins.

    I met him when I was a kid, after that wonderful fight, but I think after he had been brutally KO'd by Razor Ruddock. He was nice to me and took a photo with me.

    RIP Champ -- that was an incredible war with Evander that I just re-watched last week.
