Emile Alphonse Griffith (February 3, 1938 – July 23, 2013) was a professional boxer from the U.S. Virgin Islands who became a World Champion in the welterweight, junior middleweight and middleweight classes. His best known contest was a 1962 title match with Benny Paret. At the weigh in, Paret infuriated Griffith, a bisexual man, by touching his buttocks and making a homophobic slur. Griffith won the bout by knockout; Paret never recovered consciousness and died in the hospital 10 days later.

What idiot posted this picture of Sade the singer as the Sade that married boxers Emile Griffith! Sorry Sade the singer is obviously not the correct Sade. This is hilarious but sad, do so basic arithmetic would have prevented this. If they married in 1971, then Sade would have been 11 or 12 years of age.
