Alexis Arguello (April 19,1952 - July 1, 2009), also known by the ring name El Flaco Explosivo, was a Nicaraguan professional boxer and politician. As a boxer he was a three-weight world champion, having held the WBA featherweight title as well as the WBC super featherweight and lightweight titles. He has regularly been cited as one of the greatest fighters of his era, having never lost any of his world titles in the ring, instead relinquishing them each time in pursuit of titles in higher weight classes. After his retirement from boxing, Arguello became active in Nicaraguan politics and in November 2008 he was elected mayor of Managua, the nation's capital city.
Arguello is ranked 20th on The Ring magazine's list of "100 greatest punchers of all time" and was voted by the Associated Press in 1999 as the #1 junior lightweight of the 20th century.
Boxing career
Arguello suffered an unavenged first round TKO loss in his 1968 professional debut, but then won 36 of his next 38 bouts, which then led him to a world Featherweight championship bout against experienced WBA champion Ernesto Marcel of Panama in Panama. The young challenger lost a 15-round unanimous decision in Marcel's retirement bout.
Undaunted, Arguello began another streak of wins, and found himself in the ring with a world champion again, this time challenging Marcel's successor to the throne, Mexican world champion Ruben Olivares in Los Angeles. After Olivares built a small lead on the judge's scorecards, Arguello and Olivares landed simultaneous left hooks in round thirteen. Olivares's left hand caused a visible expression of pain on Arguello's face, but Arguello's left hand caused Olivares to crash hard against the canvas. A few seconds later, Arguello was the new Featherweight champion of the world.
Arguello successfully defended this title four times, then moved up in weight to challenge world Junior Lightweight champion Alfredo Escalera in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, in what has been nicknamed The Bloody Battle of Bayamon by many. Escalera had been a busy champion with ten defenses, and he had dethroned Kuniaki Shibata in 2 rounds in Tokyo. In what some experts (including The Ring writers) consider one of the most brutal fights in history, Escalera had his eye, mouth and nose broken early, but was rallying back in the scorecards when Arguello finished him, once again in the thirteenth round.
His reign at Junior Lightweight saw him fend off the challenges of Escalera in a rematch held at Rimini, Italy, as well as former and future world champion Bobby Chacon, future two time world champion Rafael "Bazook" Limon, Ruben Castillo, future champion Rolando Navarrete, and Diego Alcala, beaten in only one round.
Arguello suffered many cuts around his face during his second victory against Escalera. The on site doctor wanted him hospitalized, but Arguello had a flight to catch from Rome the next day to return to Nicaragua, and boarded a train from Rimini. The doctor decided to travel with Arguello, and performed plastic surgery on Arguello's cuts with Arguello awake.
After eight successful title defenses, Arguello then moved up in weight again, and this time he had to go to London, England, to challenge world Lightweight champion Jim Watt. Watt lasted fifteen rounds, but the judges gave Arguello a unanimous 15 round decision, thus making him only the sixth boxer to win world titles in 3 divisions, and second Latin American (after Wilfed Benitez had become the first by beating Maurice Hope one month before) to do it. He had to face some less known challengers in this division, one exception being the famous prospect Ray Mancini (known as "Boom Boom" Mancini) who would later be the subject of a made for television movie. Mancini and Arguello engaged in a fight that was later showcased in a boxing video of the best fights of the 1980s, with Arguello prevailing by stoppage when he decked Mancini in round 14. This fight was referenced in the Warren Zevon song "Boom Boom Mancini".
