VALE ROD CARR
THE boxing world is mourning the death this week of ROD CARR, 48, a one-time Commonwealth supermiddleweight champion who had a long battle with depression. His onetime trainer-manager-promoter BARRY
MICHAEL described it as a tragedy. “He was world class (and) as a person he had so many wonderful qualities,” Michael said from Miami where he is a guest at a convention with MARVIN HAGLER, JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, ROBERTO DURAN, LENNOX LEWIS and EVANDER HOLYFIELD.
