Armando “Mando” Muñíz

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

 

Armando Muñiz (born May 3, 1946) is a retired MexicanAmerican professional boxer and former NABF Welterweight Champion.

Muniz was a member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic boxing team.

Summary of Armando Muniz’s Professional Career

In November 1971, Muniz knocked out title contender Clyde Gray (29-1) to capture the NABF Welterweight Championship. The bout was held at the Auditorium in Long Beach, California.[1]

Muniz made the last defense of his title in 1972 when he knocked out the favored Adolph Pruitt in eight sizzling rounds.

Muniz, one of the most popular fighters ever from Southern California, fought twenty three times at the historic Olympic Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles.

Robbed of the Welterweight Title

In 1975, Muniz traveled to Acapulco, Mexico to challenge welterweight kingpin Jose “Mantequilla” Napoles.

A 6-1 underdog at the opening bell, Muniz pounded on Napoles for 12 rounds. With the champion bleeding from both eyes, referee Ramon Berumen, after concurring with the WBC officials at ringside, raised the arm of Napoles.

Most boxing experts have referred to the Napoles “victory” as one of the worst robberies in boxing history.

Muniz was cited as the “uncrowned” champion until Napoles defeated him in a rematch.

Muniz made two more unsuccessful attempts at the title in 1977, losing to Carlos Palomino. He retired in 1978.

Muniz, also a husband, father and business professional is one of the few former boxers who is also a college graduate.

Armando, who attended UCLA, taught at Rubidoux High School in Riverside, California for more than twenty years.
