I'm about the moneyI'm about the title

I'm the money I care about in this


From 1972 to 1988, two-time world boxing champion "Schoolboy" Bobby Chacon boxed sixty-seven bouts, with fifty-nine wins, forty-seven by way of knockout. Despite "little Muhammad Ali's" success as a boxer, Chacon lost the two million dollars he earned fighting to drugs, alcohol, and multiple divorces, stating that, "after I became champion [in 1982] everything became a little haywire. I could have everything I wanted now, so I did." [End Page 54]
