The widow of former world champion Johnny Tapia has remarried. KOB-TV reports representatives for Teresa Tapia confirmed Sunday that she married Johnny Tapia's half-brother, Jeffrey Padilla.

Tapia died at his Albuquerque home in 2012. Investigators said there were no indications of a drug overdose or alcohol use but that the 45-year-old former fighter likely developed medical complications from past illegal drug use.

Tapia spokesman Julian Jiron says the marriage came "out of love, respect, and the preservation of the family and Johnny's legacy." A wedding photo showed Teresa Tapia and Jeffrey Padilla joined by Johnny's sons, Johnny Tapia Jr. and Lorenzo Tapia.

In a statement, Teresa Tapia said she decided that marrying Padilla would be best for the children, for a continuation of their sense of family.

[QUOTE=richardt]Kind of odd but if misery loves company, they both were miserable by Tapia's loss and found some things to cling to.[/QUOTE] Before the age of the car, working women, and the welfare state it was really common for practical reasons. (Which likely informed the religious reasons....
