Name: ARGUELLO, ALEXIS SIGNED AW BOXING CARD (1991)

History: Alexis Argüello (April 19, 1952 – July 1, 2009), also known by the stage name El Flaco Explosivo (lit. "The Explosive Thin Man"), was a Nicaraguan professional boxer and politician. As a boxer he was a three-time world champion, and 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. His trainer was Lupe Sanchez. After his retirement from boxing, Argüello became active in Nicaraguan politics and in November 2008 he was elected mayor of Managua, the nation's capital city. He allegedly committed suicide on July 1, 2009. Arguello is ranked 20th on 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. Offered here is an original 1991 AW card, authorized by the Boxing Hall Of Fame, of Alexis Arguello which he has boldly signed.
