Another additional: “What a pitiful misfortune. An incredible fighter, took the unbelievable Wilfredo Gomez and Eusebio Pedroza to MD misfortunes, beat any semblance of Roger Mayweather, our own Cornelius Boza Edwards and topped in indistinguishable time from our amazing @ClonesCyclone – Rocky Lockridge will ALWAYS be recalled. Tear champ”.
A third remarked: “Adored by boxing fans, had a tremendous influence in making the 80s an extraordinary period for the lighter weight divisions. Battled and beat the best. 2 time extraordinary! Harmony and love”.
