Hall of Fame Boxer Alexis Arguello Found Dead at 57

82-8 with 65 of his wins coming by knockout. Alexis Arguello was a beast. He was everything that was great about boxing during his career. A career that saw him win 3 world titles in 3 different weight classes–the sixth fighter to do so. He was a smooth yet classic boxer. Passionate, hard hitting, determined and talented. His battles with Aaron Pryor were top notch during a great time for the sport.

Well, sad to report, but it appears the ex-champ and current mayor of Managua, Nicaragua…his birthplace…committed suicide via gun shot wound to the chest. An autopsy is being performed to find the exact cause, so please withhold judgment. So much death is going around. Do not take anyone for granted.
