His family confirmed the news to TMZ and shared that he died Thursday morning from complications from a stroke he suffered a while back.

Lockridge was the big fighter back in the ’80s who snagged multiple titles with victories over guys like Roger Mayweather. Unfortunately, he later became addicted to crack cocaine and he appeared on the A&E show, “Intervention,” to speak about his problem and get himself cleaned up. During the show, family members were pouring out their hearts to Rocky and he belted out a big cry that went viral. The meme was labeled the “best cry ever.”

Rocky’s son Ricky Lockridge also confirmed his father’s passing. He said,

“It is with great pain but a whole heart that I tell you family and friends that my father Ricky Lockridge aka Rocky Lockridge has passed away.” He added, “All he wanted was to be in the comfort of his home with friends/ family. God has called him to walk through the gates of heaven.”

Rocky will be missed.
