Gene 'Mad Dog' Hatcher: King of White Settlement, Texas

Meet slow-talkin’ Texan Gene “Mad Dog” Hatcher, a deep-fried character who won the WBA’s super lightweight crown in 1984 with an 11th-round KO of Johnny “Bump City” Bumphis, a 4-1 betting favorite.

“Mad Dog” regales us with multiple colorful stories from a 14-year career that included battles with Aaron “Superman” Davis, Frankie Warren, Lloyd Honeyghan, Alfredo Escalera, Ubaldo Sacco and others, and also tells us the chilling tale of how close he came to suicide after his star faded.
