Carlos Monzon (August 7, 1942 - January 8, 1995) was an Argentine professional boxer who held the Undisputed World Middleweight Championship for 7 years. He successfully defended his title 14 times and is widely regarded as not only one of the best middleweights in history but also one of the greatest boxers of all time. Known for his speed, punching power and relentless work rate, Monzon ended his career with a record of 87-3-9 with 59 knockouts, each one of his losses were early in his career and were avenged. Inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990, he was chosen by The Ring magazine in 2002 as the 11th greatest fighter of the last 80 years.
Argentines adored Monzon throughout his career. His glamorous and violent life was avidly followed both by the media and Argentine people. He was, however, accused many times of domestic violence by his two wives and many mistresses, and of beating paparazzi. Charged with killing his wife Alicia Muniz in Mar del Plata in 1988, the former champion was sentenced to 11 years in jail. He died in a January 1995 car crash during a weekend furlough.
Early life
Monzon was born in the city of San Javier, Argentina. His parents were Spanish Argentines Roque Monzon and Amalia Ledesma. Monzon was raised in poverty with his twelve siblings. When Monzon was six years old, his family moved to Barranquitas Oeste, a poor neighborhood, of Santa Fe, the captial of Santa Fe Province. To help out his family, he quit school in third grade, working different jobs, such as shoe shiner, paper boy and milk man. As a youngster, he showed and interest in boxing.
When he was sixteen, he met Zulema Encarnacion Torres, with whom he had his first son, Carlos Alberto Monzon. Later, on May 11, 1962, he married Merceds Beatriz Garcia, nicknamed 'Pelusa.' They were so poor that they did not have enough money to buy the marriage license. They had three kids: Silvia Beatriz, Abel Ricardo and Carlos Raul (adopted).
Boxing beginnings
Monzon had his first amateur fight on October 2, 1959. This first fight ended in a draw. Three years later, after a 73-6-8 amateur record, he became a professional. His first professional bout was held on February 6, 1963. He knocked out his opponent in the second round. In 1966, he won the Argentine Middleweight title. In 1967, he won the South American Middleweight title. After this success, Argentine boxing promoter Juan Carlos Lectoure pushed him into the international boxing scene by organizing fights with foreign boxers such as Douglas Huntley, Charles Austin, Johnny Brooks, Harold Richardson, Tommy Bethea, Manoel Severino and Eddy Pace.
World Middleweight Champion Nino Benvenuti had long had a distinguished career that included championships in 2 divisions and 2 wins in 3 bouts vs all-time great Emile Griffith. He had lost the year before to American Tom Bethea in Australia, but in an actual title fight in Yugoslavia, he avenged that loss.
Nobody expected Monzon to beat Benvenuti in their title match (very few knew of him). Yet Monzon applied pressure from the start, and in the 12th, a right hand landed perfectly on Benvenuti's chin, and the title change hands. Monzon also beat Benvenuti in a rematch, this time in only three rounds in Monte Carlo when his seconds threw in the towel.
In 1971, Monzon became only the second man to stop former three time world champion Emile Griffith in 14 rounds, and later out-pointed him over 15 in a close fight (before the fight Monzon had to spar three rounds and run three miles in order to make the weight). Monzon then scored a win over tough Philadelphian Bennie Briscoe, over-coming a shakey 9th round, in which Briscoe almost scored a knockout; a knockout in five rounds over European champion Tom Bogs, a knockout in seven rounds over Cuban-Mexican Jose Mantequilla Napoles in Paris, France and a 10 round knockout of tough Tony Licata of New Orleans at the Madison Square Garden, in what would turn out to be Monzon's only fight in the United States.
