Obituary: Former boxer Bobby Chacon, 64, who was a two-time world champion, died from injuries sustained from a fall at a care facility.

Like so many fighters, Chacon suffered brain damage, and he spent his final years disabled.

Chacon turned professional in 1972 and won his first 19 fights, including a win against former champion Jesus Castillo. In 1974, Chacon won the WBC featherweight title when he defeated Alfredo Marcano in nine rounds at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. Chacon eventually lost the title in a fight against Ruben Olivares.

The electoral map is becoming more and more limited for Donald Trump.

Not that he ever had a chance to begin with. Despite the media actively pushing his candidacy, he doesn't have the numbers or the bigwig GOP support.
