Recently Dead

Enrique Bolanos, a Mexican boxer who fought for and lost the world lightweight title in Los Angeles three times in the late 1940s, died Monday of heart failure¬†at a convalescent facility near his home in Pasadena. He was 87. The LA Times reports that the boxer’s soft-spoken demeanor and ring skill made him the most popular Mexican fighter in Southern California during the height of his career, which closed in 1952 with a 79-22-5 record and 44 knockouts.¬†“Good looking guy, charming, very crowd-friendly style,” said longtime boxing publicist Bill Caplan. “They loved him to pieces.” Ruby, Bolanos’ wife for 64 years, said,¬†“Enrique’s … whole purpose in life was to be champion of the world. … When it didn’t happen after the third fight, he lost his spirit. It was very sad. And his heart truly wasn’t in it again.”
