    Another Boxing great was lost today in Virginia after being hit by a car at a busy intersection. RIP Pernell, although the last bell has rang you will undoubtedly go down as one of boxings greatest.

    shocked to hear that. "Sweet Pea" was best pound for pound to many. Seemed like a great person as well.

    Wow, hard to believe there's so little recognition of a passing great.

    I knew him well. He was a kind, gentle, funny, quiet, & unassuming guy later in his years. RIP

    Saw him fight Roger Mayweather at the Norfolk Scope in 87. He was a true hometown hero, basically fighting in his backyard with 99.5% of the crowd backing him

    I read this yesterday, how sad. He was one of the best, the ‘80’s-90’s were my fave years for boxing before ufc was even started..
