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 Mexicos greatest champion and longest-running fighter in state history. Stay tuned for more info. - Chris Cozzone. Photo: Cozzone
