Boxing Babylon is a book on the tragedies associated with the lives of quite a few fighters.
Carlos Monzon was said to have had a horrific temper. Eventually, of course, he went to jail for killing his wife - throwing her off the balcony.
The fact that Valero killed himself so suddenly is what made this story stand out.

Lots of suicides in boxing - going back to Charles "Kid" McCoy.

Valero, however, exited right in the prime of his career which (like a Stanley Ketchel death at 24) adds an extra element of shock to an already shocking sequence of events. My friend's mother died yesterday and a few hours later, I read about Valero. It was some day.
