  Ray Mancini - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ray Mancini (born March 4, 1961) was an Italian-American boxer from the southside of Youngstown, Ohio.
Mancini was not done, and he would come back twice again for world title attempts, one of which produced the now famous phrase of his: 'If you stop it, I'll kill ya!!!', quoting the famous line spoken by Rocky Balboa in the 1976 movie Rocky.
Mancini retired officially in 1993, leaving a record of 29-5 with 23 knockouts and a very touching and inspiring story as a brave world champion who won the title for his family, as well as for himself.

 Duk Koo Kim - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mancini and Kim met in an arena outside Caesar's Palace on November 13, 1982.
Mancini also had won a 12-round bout with another excellent southpaw boxer Jose Luis Ramirez (71-3-0 at that time, 102-9-0 career record).

 [No title]
Ray was the son of a former boxer (Lenny who was a contender in line for a shot against Sammy Angott in the 40's) who carried on his fathers dreams who was wounded in World War II and could no longer fight to his previous ability.
Ray fought with his usual all action style winging punches from all angles, but the ring savvy of Arguello was too much as he avoided the rushes of Mancini finding big openings for counter punches.
Ray himself was cut and bruised from the two way slugging but had the advantage in handspeed which he used well stepping to the side and landing straight punches to the head when the battle came out of the phone booth.

Ray somehow surreptitiously wormed his way back into the boxing game, first by getting a one-time gig as a ref, and then by getting another, and eventually by getting a lot more, until he was a WB* staple for their championship fights.
Ray had his doubts, but looking at the structure he quickly understood that by limiting his field of vision to it he might be able to convince himself that he was at least in Hartford, or at the very least in Edmonton.
Ray was by himself at the far end of the bar, nursing a drink I knew to be a double scotch and (based on Oo Chic's detailed info) pondering his earlier failure to perform.
