Johnny Tapia was found dead in New Mexico. No official cause has not been determined.
Tapia is a 5-time world champion. This is not the first time the Tapia family has been through a tragedy. Tapia’s father was murdered while his mom was pregnant with him. If that wasn’t enough hardship, when Tapia was 8, his mother was kidnapped, raped and hung.
Some may think this may be a result of an overdose. Back in 2007, Tapia was rushed to the hospital because of a cocaine OD.
Johnny Tapia was 47 years old.
