From a life of poverty to the Olympic boxing team to defeating former
champ Chase Beebe in the WEC, there seemed to be no limits to how far
Will Ribeiro could go.
That is until three years ago today.
After fulfilling a promise to
deliver the gloves from his fight against Brian Bowles to a student in
his native Brazil, Ribeiro's motorcycle was struck from behind by a
racing car. It sent him flying through the air headfirst into a curb.
