    FLOYD PATTERSON, 1935-2006 

    Floyd Patterson, the former two-time heavyweight champion of the world, and one of the most beloved and popular figures in the world of boxing, died Thursday at the age of 71.

    Our colleague, boxing writer extraordinaire Charles Farrell, was a business partner of Floyd’s for a couple of years. Floyd also trained fighters whom he then managed. Charles sent us this brief but touching remembrance of his late friend:

    “In a business where the best fighters are seldom macho and seldom push their weight around, Floyd was the mildest of them all. He always went out of his way to understand the other person's point of view and took great care to not embarrass anyone. Floyd Patterson was a guy whose public persona matched his inner make-up almost exactly. The only thing that didn't come across in public was his wonderful sense of humor. We made each other laugh. I'm very lucky to have been his friend.”

    The New York Times also has an obituary of Floyd Patterson on their web site.
