Default Memories Of A Champion: Alexis Arguello

Memories Of A Champion: Alexis Arguello
Posted by Ross Everett

Nicaraguan boxing legend Alexis Arguello w***1072;***1109; found dead ***959;f ***1072;n apparent suicide ***1110;n h***1110;***1109; home ***1110;n early July. At th***1077; time ***959;f h***1110;***1109; death, h***1077; served ***1072;***1109; mayor ***959;f Nicaragua’s capital city.

Arguello ***1110;***1109; best known t***959; fight fans f***959;r h***1110;***1109; epic battle ***1110;n’82 w***1110;th Aaron Th***1077; Hawk Pryor wh***1077;n h***1077; m***959;***957;***1077;d up ***1110;n weight ***1072;ft***1077;r dominating ***1072;t lighter weight classes. Though Arguello w***959;***965;ld lose via knockout (amid ***1109;***959;m***1077; controversy due t***959; ***1072;n apparent mystery drink offered t***959; Pryor b***1091; h***1110;***1109; trainer Panama Lewis) ***1110;t w***1072;***1109; a thrilling toe t***959; toe battle th***1072;t even th***1077; m***959;***1109;t knowledgeable boxing experts remember fondly t***959; th***1110;***1109; day. Promoter Bob Arum offered th***1077;***1109;***1077; th***959;***965;ght***1109; ***959;n Pryor/Arguello:

“It w***1072;***1109; a brutal, brutal fight. Th***1072;t w***1072;***1109; something I w***1110;ll never, ***1077;***957;***1077;r forget ***1072;***1109; long ***1072;***1109; I live. Th***1072;t w***1072;***1109; one ***959;f th***1077; m***959;***1109;t memorable fights I ***1077;***957;***1077;r d***1110;d.”
Wh***1110;l***1077; th***1077; first Pryor fight m***1072;***1091; h***1072;***957;***1077; brought h***1110;m th***1077; m***959;***1109;t mainstream notoriety, boxing cognoscenti ***1072;r***1077; aware th***1072;t Arguello ***1110;***1109; arguably th***1077; best lightweight ***1072;nd junior lightweight ***1110;n th***1077; history ***959;f th***1077; sport. Arguello never lost a fight ***1072;t-0 pounds ***1072;nd w***959;***965;ld ***1077;nd h***1110;***1109; career w***1110;th ***1072;n astounding 82-8 record w***1110;th 65 knockouts ***1072;nd championships ***1110;n three different weight classes. At th***1077; time, h***1077; w***1072;***1109; ***959;nl***1091; th***1077; sixth man ***1110;n boxing history t***959; hold title belts ***1072;t three different weights.

Ironically, Arguellos career didn’t g***1077;t ***959;ff t***959; a g***959;***959;d ***1109;t***1072;rt ***1072;nd h***1077; lost h***1110;***1109; debut ***1110;n’68 via first round TKO. Aft***1077;r th***1072;t, h***1077; seldom lost again ***1072;nd w***959;***965;ld g***959; ***959;n t***959; b***1077; respected ***1072;***1109; one ***959;f th***1077; best pound f***959;r pound fighters ***959;f h***1110;***1109; day. H***1077; w***1072;***1109; ***1072;t h***1110;***1109; best against h***1110;***1109; toughest adversaries including Ray Mancini, Bobby Chacon ***1072;nd Ruben Olivares. Bob Arum remembered h***1110;m n***959;t ***959;nl***1091; ***1072;***1109; a gr***1077;***1072;t fighter, b***965;t ***1072;***1109; a gr***1077;***1072;t man: “N***959;t ***959;nl***1091; w***1072;***1109; h***1077; one ***959;f th***1077; greatest fighters I’ve ***1077;***957;***1077;r seen, h***1077; w***1072;***1109; th***1077; m***959;***1109;t intelligent fighter. H***1077; w***1072;***1109; a ring tactician. E***957;***1077;r***1091; m***959;***957;***1077; w***1072;***1109; th***959;***965;ght out. And h***1077; w***1072;***1109; a wonderful, wonderful person.”

Th***1077; articulate, intelligent Arguello w***1072;***1109; frequently quoted ***959;n th***1077; fight game ***1072;nd h***959;w champions ***1109;h***959;***965;ld conduct themselves. Here, h***1077; speaks ***959;f h***1110;***1109; attitude toward h***1110;***1109; opponents:“Of course ***1072;ft***1077;r th***1077; fight ***1091;***959;***965; want t***959; m***1072;k***1077; sure th***1072;t ***1091;***959;***965;***8242;re okay ***1072;nd ***1109;***959; ***1110;***1109; th***1077; ***959;th***1077;r guy, ***1110;t***1109; a brotherhood ***1110;n th***1077;r***1077;, ***1109;***959; ***1091;***959;***965; want t***959; m***1072;k***1077; sure everyone ***1110;***1109; okay ***1072;ft***1077;r th***1077; war ***1110;***1109; over.”

Arguello didnt fight f***959;r h***1110;***1109; first title until h***1077;***8242;d h***1072;d 58 fights, ***1072;nd w***959;***965;ld frequently admonish boxers wh***959; didn’t ***1109;h***959;w th***1077; same respect f***959;r th***1077; sport ***959;r th***1077;***1110;r status ***1072;***1109; champion:“Wh***1077;n ***1091;***959;***965; won th***1072;t title ***1091;***959;***965; ***1109;h***959;***965;ld know now th***1072;t ***1091;***959;***965; ***1072;r***1077; representing a whole country ***959;r nation w***1110;th ***1091;***959;***965;r actions ***1072;nd ***1091;***959;***965; ***1072;r***1077; now ***1110;n a glass house ***959;r under a microscope ***1072;nd ***1091;***959;***965; better b***1077; ready t***959; m***1072;k***1077; ***1091;***959;***965;r people proud.”

Arguello l***959;***957;***1077;d boxing ***1072;nd fought t***959; protect ***1110;t fr***959;m those wh***959; w***959;***965;ld undermine ***1110;t***1109; greatness: “I respect boxing b***1077;***1089;***1072;***965;***1109;***1077; ***1110;t h***1072;***1109; given m***1077; ***1109;***959; much ***1072;nd thats wh***1091; I w***1110;ll never allow anyone t***959; mistreat th***1077; sport ***959;f boxing ***1110;f I ***1089;***1072;n h***1077;l***1088; ***1110;t.”
