Post Comments Thread For: Johnny Tapia 1967-2012: Looking Back at "Mi Vida Loca"

The death certificate of Johnny Tapia will say that he lived to be 45 years old. But anyone who knew him or followed his life and career will say that in terms of experience, of tragedy and triumph, of love and heartbreak, that the man rightfully dubbed “Mi Vida Loca” lived at least five lives of 45 years before he was found dead in his home on Sunday.

The official word is that there is no official word at this time on the beloved former world champion’s cause of death. Following his various battles with drugs and previous suicide attempts, you hope, if only for his family’s peace of mind, that all the years of wild living just finally caught up to him naturally (if there is such a thing at 45), and that his old demons didn’t come back to haunt him in his final hours.

Great poster! - E.P.T. to an ATG poster. One who always keeps it 100% real - BrushMyHair

Johnny was a great example of what can be accomplished with hard work and discipline. And just how easily addiction can take all that away. He was a great boxer and image how great he would have been if he had a clear head on his shoulders.
On another note Johnny's two losses to Ayala were questionable to say the least. The first fight was pretty close but the second fight was a straight up robbery.
No matter what trouble he had in and out of the ring he will always be one the the most loved people in Burque. And that speaks volumes because Albuquerque is a negative place and I have lost to many friend to drugs and violence and I kind of feel like I lost another.

Like I mentioned in the previous thread on this regrettable incident I watched Johnny Tapia develop as a pro(since he had his 1st few fights) & he always gave it his all in the ring & out of the ring.. Tapia was NEVER in a boring fight & other than the trouble everyone knows about that Tapia had outside of boxing(drugs, arrests, hospitalized ect) there's also good stories like the one's mentioned in this article & like the time he was walking at the Boardwalk in Atlantic City & saw some guys mugging someone & Tapia ran up & fought the guys off & even laid 1 or 2 of them out!!(not sure how many, but definitely someone was laid out!) Tapia early in his career even got to fight in cards promoted by Boxing Legend & now also deceased Alexis Argüello(for those that don't know, Argüello had a short stint as a promoter based out of Miami)..Q.E.P.D Johnny "Mi Vida Loca" Tapia..He really lived a Vida Bien Loca & will always be remembered!!
