Goodwin trained under Steward at the Kronk Gym during the same years Thomas "The Hitman" Hearns was training. After starting his career with 29 wins (18 knock outs) and 1 loss, Steward announced on January 5, 1982, he had arranged a fight for Goodwin against Marvin Hagler in Italy on March 6, 1982. Goodwin broke his hand during training and was replaced with William "Caveman" Lee, never again getting a chance for a title fight, despite finishing his career 40-2-1.On March 3, 2009, Goodwin died of a stroke. Melvindale police initially reported that Goodwin had been beaten to death in his home, but later corrected the cause to a stroke. Goodwin had fallen down a flight of stairs after stroking out, took a shower, went to sleep, and died.
