Carlos Monzón was Argentina’s golden son: a man with a humble background who managed to win the boxing World Middleweight Championship – a title he defended 14 times. But his violence did not stay inside the ring. On the morning of February 14th 1988, in a domestic dispute, he murdered his wife, then threw her half-naked body over the railing of a second floor balcony. Yet, this brutal event did not change his fan’s opinion of him. With the mother of his son no longer alive, he was no less of a hero in their eyes.
