Yes, Bubba is truly a great fighter!, and an inspiration to any from a small town with, the will, and the dreams to do what it takes to show the strength and pride in ones self , to show everyone that you can make it happen, I knew Bubba and I know first hand how hard he worked to accomplish his goals. There were a number of fighters from this area, that were Inspired by Bubba, Another good friend of mine who made a name for himself was FARRIN COMMEAUX, better known in the boxing world of southeast Texas, actually two more besides the great BUBBA BUSHEME, was , and to save my life cannot at this second recall his name, but like Bubba made it to the big show when he fought the great "MARVELOUS MARVIN HAGALAR" for the middle weight crown, I mean we've got alot to be proud of here in Southeast Texas, Bubba a 4 time Golden Glove Champion and Great Olympian, Farrin Commeaux who was Pernell Whittaker debut fight as a professional, after winning the Olympic Gold Medal in '92, and this was big time for Farrin. A small town hero in a venue such as Madison Square Gardens, and although losing that fight, gave Pernell a wake up call to the professional ranks. And I didn't even mention. Floyd Maywether who went deep in the ranks, now trained his son to still is pound for pound is the best fighter in the world, but lets not forget who led the way in Southeast Texas, the great Bubba Busehme
