Scott LeDoux was a heavyweight contender in the 1970’s and 80’s 무황전생 다운로드. Today is battling his toughest opponent ever, ALS or better known as Lou Gerhig’s Disease. There is no cure or treatment. This once robust fighter has already been weakened enough to need a walker to get around golden 6.

In his fifty bout career Scott met eight heavyweight champions. EIGHT ! George Foreman, Leon Spinks, Ken Norton, Mike Weaver, Gerrie Coetzee, Frank Bruno and the recently deceased Greg Page a 태그 다운로드. On July 7,1980 Scott met Larry Holmes for the WBC title. He was stopped in seven rounds. In addition to meeting eight champs, he also fought three men who challenged for crown. They were Ron Lyle, Terry Daniels and Ron Stander. He also met other worthy contenders like Duane and Rodney Bobick, Marty Monroe, Dino Dennis, Larry Middleton and Johnny Boudreaux. Scott’s bout with Boudreaux stands out. It was part of the US Boxing Tourney. LeDoux lost a very debatable decision. A little scuffle ensued and somewhere in melee Howard Cosell’s toupee was dislodged. Fond memories…

My favorite LeDoux fight was his battle with Ken Norton. Well behind on points the gutsy LeDoux mounted a rally to close the gap. He had Norton out on his feet at the final bell. The bout ended in a draw.

Scott showed great courage in his career and he continues to show that courage as he faces an unconquerable enemy. Please keep Scott in your thoughts and prayers.
