Diego" Chico" Corrales – Former two-division world champion Diego “Chico” Corrales, who lived as hard as he fought, died in a motorcycle crash Monday night in Las Vegas, two years to the day after his greatest triumph on May 7th 2007.

We have met Chico here in Las Vegas and I can only say he was one great person and everyone liked him very much. One evening we had a little get together at our house Chico came by and let us take some Photos…awesome…New Years Eve 2006-2007 he invited us to his place to celebrate the new year, great place he had and a wonderful view of the whole Las Vegas Strip. Chicos Motorcycle accident was about half a mile down the same street we live on. It was a very sad evening for alot of people. My Husband went to the funeral and it was packed with all the pro boxers.
I am very happy and fortuned that I have met Chico he was a great person.
We miss you.

    R.I.P Champ….as a former boxer myself it’s always sad to see one of ’’us’’ leave. Great shot.

    wow what an amazing shot of an amazing boxer!!! Chico was great and very talented. I am sure he is missed by many… his fights were always great to watch!
