Photograph Signed: "Ray Boom Boom Mancini," and co-signed: "Bobby Chacon," in blue felt tip ink. Color, 10x8. Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini (b.1961) is a retired professional boxer whose career spanned over 5 years from 1980 to 1985. He won his first championship in 1981, and his first WBA Championship the following year when he fought the reigning champion Arturo Frias, defeating him only 2 minutes and 54 seconds into the first round. He is most known though, however, for a tragic fight in the ring with boxer Duk Koo Kim where Mancini pummeled Kim for 14 straight rounds. Kim suffered brain injuries that later led to his death. His mother and bout referee committed suicide after the young fighter's death. Mancini, riddled with guilt and shame, fell into a deep depression. He retired from the sport all together in 1985. Although he had faced an unfortunate tragedy in the ring, Mancini was able to overcome his depression and continue his life on a high note. He now pursues acting, and has appeared in several films and T.V. Shows, including the television hit Friday Night Lights. Mancini retired with the record of 29-5, an impressive stat for the ambitious fighter. Bobby Chacon (1951-2016) was world featherweight boxing champion (1974-1975) and Super Featherweight Champion (1982). A heavy puncher, Chacon won 59 fights, 47 by knockout, while losing only seven. He was The Ring magazine's 1982 comeback fighter of the year. Fine condition.
