In depth: Angel Manfredy

October 22nd, 2012

 Angel Manfredy fought in a dozen world championship belts during an 11-year career, knocking out the likes of Jorge Paez and Arturo Gatti, beating Wilson Rodriguez, Ivan Robinson andJulio Diaz, losing close decisions to Stevie Johnston and Paul Spadafora.

 But he lived as wrecklessly as he fought, delving heavily into alcohol, cocaine and loose women, a near-lethal cocktail for the boxer who called himself 'El Diablo."

 Manfredy spoke candidly about his life on the Oct. 21, 2012 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show, during which he took us on a tour from his early life as a streetfighter to the fateful night when a cocaine binge nearly caused him to blow his own head off in his bedroom.
