    The Half-Brother of Paul Spadafora Found Dead of an Apparent Overdose.

    Charles Marsico, the 40-year-old half-brother of former IBF lightweight champion Paul Spadafora, has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose. Marsico resided in the Westwood neighborhood in the West End of Pittsburgh.

    Paul Spadafora, who turns 42 in September, won the vacant IBF world lightweight title in 1999 and was 7-0-1 in title defenses before his career was interrupted by legal problems. These problems continued to plague him. At various times he was arrested for attempted murder after shooting his pregnant girlfriend and, more recently, for the assault of a 63-year-old woman with whom he had an argument in a bar. According to KDKA in Pittsburgh, Spadafora is currently in jail for stabbing his half-brother, the late Mr. Marsico, during a fight. And the decedent had legal troubles of his own. In 2013, Marsico was arrested for multiple indecent exposures.

    It wouldn't be far-fetched to call Spadafora a borderline Hall-of-Famer. The "Pittsburgh Kid," as he was dubbed, finished his pro career with a record of 49-1-1 with the loss occurring in his next-to-last fight.

    I always thought SOUTHPAW was influenced by Spadafora.
