Lightning Lloyd opened against Eddie (Ice Man) Taylor and won on a third-round TKO. Too Tough Troy knocked out John (Cardiac Kid) Salas in the first round. But Flaming Floyd's burnout halted the celebration. The brothers consoled each other in a private, speeded-up, triplet version of English that nobody else understands. "All three of us have to win," explained Troy. "If one of us loses, we all lose." Even if the loss turns into a no contest.
The Trips want to stay with boxing until each wins a world championship. "Either we're all going to win a title belt," says Troy, "or we'll get one big belt to wrap around all three of us."
