I remember when he took out Sugar Shane. If I recall Mosley, had just had that great fight with De La Hoya, one of the best I've ever seen. That fight, and the rematch, and then Forrest getting dismantled by Mayorga, and Mayorga getting destroyed by De La Hoya formed this epic circle. Boxing is so much about the match-up.

Forrest is dead, shot after he, apparently, took offense to two carjackers. I'm so tired of hearing this story. I'm so tired of watching brothers go out like this. He leaves behind a son. Seems like they always do.
