Former Klitschko Foe Charged in Cold Case Murder
by David P. Greisman
Exum Speight has two types of records — a boxing record and a criminal record. As of right now, neither looks good.
Speight won just 9 of his 50 pro fights, losing 39 times and seeing two other bouts ending in a draw. Many of these defeats came against recognizable names at heavyweight and cruiserweight, including John Ruiz, Chris Byrd, Shannon Briggs, Wladimir Klitschko and Vassiliy Jirov, many of whom were very early into their careers. Speight's time in the sport lasted from 1986 to 2001.
But way back toward the beginning of his pro career, he allegedly killed his manager, a man named Douglas Stumler, according to CNN. That case dated all the way back to 1987, and it was closed Sept. 25 with the arrest of Speight, who is now 50 years old.
Per the article: "Los Angeles' cold case detectives developed a break in the case after they screened potential forensic leads under a grant from National Institute of Justice's 'Solving Cold Cases with DNA' program, authorities said."

By the way, Exum beat a bloke named Shawn Prokesh who lost to a fella named Chris Slaughter who beat Jerry Strickland who lost to Juan LaPorte who was the Featherweight champ. From a huge heavyweight champ to featherweight champ…Comment by Counter Troll on 09-26-2013
[QUOTE=taansend;13784415]The case isn't closed until he's been convicted. We have that little thing in America where you're innocent until proven guilty. [SIZE="3"][B]By the way, what does Exum mean? He used to be an Um.[/B][/SIZE][/QUOTE] [B]ZINGER![/B]Post a Comment - View More User Comments (11)
