Oscar Bonavena – Heavyweights of the 1970s

With a 58-9-1 record on February 2, 1976, Bonavena was just 33 years old when he had a dispute at the Mustang Ranch in Nevada that ended with the security guard there shooting Bonavena dead. While the Argentine-born Bonavena had an outstanding record, he lost to some of the best fighters of the decade (Ron Lyle, Ali, Joe Frazier, Jimmy Ellis, Floyd Patterson), but some of those fights occurred before 1970.
