Sadly, the most ironic, deadly, and comical boxer in the modern game, Ali Raymi, age 41, has passed away in the civil war ravaged Yemen.
The Greatest Ever, like his rival, The Best Ever, Floyd Mayweather Jr, who fights exclusively at MGM Floyd while rotating his stock of selected officials, Raymi fought exclusively in Yemen against Yemeni fighters using Yemeni officials. Fruitlessly he called out international champs Roman Gonzalez and Guillermo Rigondeaux to come and fight him. Perhaps most notably was the way he utterly gutted the anti-social media misanthropes on their own forums with such original pearls of belittlement and disdain that they too fell hard to the dazzling display of brillance Raymi displayed in and out of the ring.
Ali compiled a 25-0, 25 KO record during the 4 years that he fought, finally winning the Universal Boxing Organization light flyweight title in a legendary 4 fight series against Prince Maz. His was not a pretty style, it was simple savagery refined with relentless blunt force conditioning. He gave no quarter and in the end, armed terrorists gave him no quarter. R.I.P.
