A very sad day for boxing fans in Los Angeles and around the world, Mando Ramos has passed away. Don't know all the details yet, Rodolfo Gonzalez just called to give me the news, he had just been informed by Carlos Palomino, who had been notified by Mando's wife Sylvia. I was told Mando awoke this morning with breathing problems, the paramedics were called and they could not revive him.

..............From what John Garfield has told us here, I guessed his health wasn't all that good.

For all here that haven't seen Mando in action, you've missed out. One exciting battler, and a true staple of the southern California boxing scene in those heady years of the late 60's-early 70's. He was a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

This is sad news.

Go to boxrec.com and look at the quality of fighers he fought over a 4 year period.

He was in the mix for the Lightweight title during the 68-72 period.

I think I only saw him once live on TV,,,,,,but always read about his fights in Ring/ Box Illus. / World Boxing a month later.

Teo Cruz, Laguna, Sugar Ramos, Rojas, Navarro, Carassco (3 times), & Carmano (sp?).

Fighting in LA at the Olumpic, the Sports Auditorium, the Colesium. etc.

Those guys were FIGHTERS.

RIP Mando....my hat is off to you.

Mando has a underrated resume, what Loughhorn mention above, is relly a who's who of that era. He fought the best out there of couse. Also held the record for youngest champ ever. I belive.

Boxer Mando Ramos dies at 59
1 hour, 8 minutes ago

Buzz Up PrintLOS ANGELES (AP)—Mando Ramos, a two-time lightweight boxing champion beset by drug and alcohol abuse, has died. He was 59.

Ramos died Sunday at his home in San Pedro, according to his wife, Sylvia. She said her husband, a diabetic, went into respiratory arrest and paramedics were unable to revive him.

Ramos turned pro in 1965, three days after his 17th birthday. He retired a decade later with a record of 37-11-1 with 23 knockouts.

“I never really trained, not for a single fight,” he once told the Los Angeles Times. “Oh, I went to the gym every day. But I drank every night. Fighters never beat me. But drugs and alcohol (did).”

Ramos stopped Carlos Teo Cruz in the 11th round in 1969 to win the lightweight title, then lost it in 1970 to Ismael Laguna. He regained the title in 1972 with a split decision over Pedro Carrasco, then lost it later in the year when Chango Carmona stopped him in the eighth round.

“By 1974, I was sleeping in cars,” Ramos told the Times.

He checked into a rehab clinic in the early 1980s and remained sober the rest of his life. When he got out of rehab, he started Boxing Against Alcohol and Drugs, a program aimed at youngsters.

Ramos, born in Long Beach, was inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame on June 21.

“He was the complete fighter,” said former champion Carlos Palomino, Ramos’ presenter. “He could box, he could brawl, he could do it all.”

In addition to his wife, Ramos’ survivors include a son, brother and four grandchildren.
