B/w action photo of feather and lightweight boxing champ Alexis Arguello throwing punches in the ring, signed by him in 1991 with - what else? - "The Champion"
Photograph signed "Alexis A/10/31/91/The/Champion" in red ink. Black ink notations on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 7¾x9¾ overall, 3¾x5¾ image, one surface. Nicaraguan boxer Arguello (1952-2009), turned pro in 1968 and won 14 championship fights. He was WBA Featherweight Champ (1974-1977), WBC Super Featherweight Champ (1978-1980) and WBC Lightweight Champ (1982-1983) before he faced Aaron Pryor in 1982 for the WBA Junior Welterweight title to achieve his goal of titles in four boxing divisions. Arguello lost that fight with a TKO in the 14th round and was KOd in the tenth round in the rematch in September 1983. Although he announced his retirement after his second loss to Pryor, Arguello returned to the ring, winning one fight in 1985, 1986 and 1995. Arguello, who had a record of 80 wins (64 KOs) and eight losses, was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1992. He was voted mayor of his hometown of Managua, Nicaragua in 2008. Lightly toned. Signature has low contrast but is legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
