Jorge Barrios Falls on Hard Times, Now Selling Shoes

By Elisinio Castillo

Former WBO super featherweight champion Jorge "La Hyena" Barrios (50-4-1, 35KOs) of Argentina is financially struggling. Barrios, 37 years old, first went pro in 1996 and he was involved in several big fights in the United States.

According to overseas reports, Barrios is now selling shoes to make ends meet.

The career of Barrios came to a halt in 2010 when he faced a big criminal trial which stemmed from a car accident on January 24th of that year in Mar del Plata. The accident killed a young pregnant woman.

Since overcoming the criminal charges, Barrios has been unable to schedule a fight and he announced his retirement in January of this year.
