Boxer hangs himself in jail after being arrested on suspicion of wife’s death

leave a comment »

Its sad to hear stories like this. Talented, accomplished athlete takes his own life after complicated situations. Twenty-eight year old Venezuelan boxer Edwin Valero hung himself with his own clothes in a jail cell after being detained when his 24-year old wife was found dead.

We obviously don’t know the whole story yet, but we do know that Valero was a former champion in both the superfeather weight and lightweight divisions, and his record was impeccable at 27-0 (27KO).

What a shame.
