Gilberto Corrales Accused of Murdering Estranged Wife

By Francisco Salazar

A former professional fighter living in the Los Angeles-area has been accused of murdering his estranged wife last Friday.

Former super bantamweight fringe contender Gilberto Corrales has been accused of murdering his estranged wife Gretchen Lohr-Corrales.

According to CBS 2 news in Los Angeles, Lohr-Corrales’ body was found in her car, just blocks away from Gilberto Corrales’ South Los Angeles home. The two were separated, but were still legally married, apparently for the sake of their children.

Corrales, who last fought in April of 2002 until a freak injury to his right hand forced him to stop boxing, has been arrested. He will make a court appearance on December 4th, where he is expected to be formally charged.

Gahr-Corrales was an avid runner, who coached at Louisville High School in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills. She also coached at California State University, Los Angeles.

Corrales (19-1-1, 16 KOs) is originally from Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. His most significant victory was a seventh-round disqualification victory over David Murillo in May of 1999.

Ironically, Corrales fought on the first Friday telecast of Solo Boxeo back on January 18th, 2002. He knocked out Jose Alfredo Jimenez in the seventh round at the Palladium in Hollywood, CA.

He would then lose his next fight three months later, dropping a 12 round split decision to Ricardo Medina.
