ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- Police say five-time world boxing champion Johnny Tapia has been found dead by a family member at his home in Albuquerque, N.M.
The 45-year-old Tapia won five championships in three weight classes, winning the WBA bantamweight title, the IBF and WBO junior bantamweight titles and the IBF featherweight belt.
But his career also was marred by cocaine addiction, alcohol, depression and run-ins with the law.
Tapia last fought in June, defeating Mauricio Pastrana in an eight-round decision. He finished with a 59-5-2 record.
