If you are a true fight fan be it boxing or MMA then it seems like we could be losing a Croatian fighting Icon. Mate Parlov was our boxer. Talk to your dads about him and chest swell and they speak about him with pride. He was born in SPlit and was and is an icon to our people and any Serb or Bosnian or any ex Yu by nationality for that matter speak about with pride. He's fighting a bad disease in a hospital in Zagreb. Heres a breif bio and article in Vecernj.

He was a great athlete.
