Ray Mancini is a retired American fighter with an estimated net worth of $5 million. Raymond Michael Mancini was produced on March 4, 1961 in Youngstown, Ohio. Nearly produced using a set of Everlast gloves on his hands, Mancini came from a notable boxing family, along with his dad, Lenny Mancini, once being a top ranked competition in the 1940s before being injured in the second world war. Mancini got his nickname “Boom Boom” from his dad. As expected, the Lenny supported Mancini to begin training in a boxing gymnasium early in his life.

However, later he completed junior career before turning professional in 1979. Mancini’s competitive style brought in interest from boxing executives from the beginning of his career and he was featured frequently on television. His first major fight came when he took on famous Alexis Arguello for the WBO lightweight title in 1981. Although Mancini won the opening rounds, Arguello used his guile and understanding to win the later rounds and eventually quit Mancini in the 14th round.

Mancini’s livelihood, life and place in athletic lore would transform eternally in 1982 when he defended his crown against South Korean Duk Koo Kim at Caesars Palace. The damage done to Kim eventually resulted in his departure four days subsequent to the fight. The disaster made Mancini slip right into a melancholy and though he’d continue to fight and kept his title until 1984, he confesses he was never quite exactly the same. After his profession, Mancini enlarged his business portfolio to incorporate a cigar firm, and two movie production companies. His life was chronicled in the 2012 documentary, The Good Son and he’s appeared in numerous other shows and films including as an analyst in Celebrity Boxing, in the movie Redbelt. Mancini also produced the film Youngstown: Still Standing. Mancini was married in 1989 but afterwards divorced. He’s got a daughter and two sons.

Quotes

#Quote
1[Talking about his fight with Duk-Koo Kim]: I wish I could say it was a classic moment but it wasn't in my eyes because Kim died and after his death I simply lost all passion for the sport. I really did. It was eerie because Kim had taped to his door a sign that read: Kill or Be Killed. I just brought closure to that situation last year (May, 2002). I visited Korea to support a film about the life of Du Koo Kim. I was apprehensive, to be honest, but I couldn't believe what happened. The Koreans treated me like a national hero. They treated me with love and respect. You see, in their eyes, Du Koo Kim died a warrior, a hero. He died honorably for something he believed in, something he defended. I was able to explain my situation and my feelings. There was no animosity toward me, what-so-ever. It was rewarding because my kids are taunted sometimes by their classmates' parents.
2[Talking about Duk-Koo Kim]: The rest of my life, I'm not just Ray Mancini, I'm Ray Mancini, the guy who killed Duk Koo Kim. You never escape that. You wonder what it would have been like for the both of us if I had quit or if he had quit and this hadn't happened.I have done a lot of praying, a lot of thinking. I'm never really going to know why it happened. No one will. He was a tough kid. Too tough, really. Too tough.
3[Talking about Duk-Koo Kim]: He died once, and I felt I was dying every day, when you're a fighter, you develop a respect for your opponent and I had all the respect in the world for this guy. I just wanted to win the fight. I never wanted to see him hurt. It was devastating.
