R.I.P. - Johnny Tapia
Johnny Tapia is dead

The Albuquerque Police has told KOB-TV in Albuquerque, N.M. that boxing legend Johnny Tapia, 45, was found dead inside his Albuquerque home earlier today. Sources close to the Tapia family have confirmed.

The five-time world champion, known for his battles with cross-town rival Danny Romero, Paulie Ayala, Marco Antonio Barrera and a host of other great champions, was New Mexico’s greatest champion – and longest-running fighter in state history.
