Boxing champion Agapito Sanchez dies of gunshot wound
font size    

2001 boxing champion Agapito Sanchez of the Dominican Republic died on Tuesday in Santo Domingo of bullet wounds received on Sunday night, said Genaro Fanjul, representative of Dominica��s boxing commission.

The 35-year-old Sanchez died at a Santo Domingo hospital hours after surgery to remove two bullets from his stomach. He was shot by a policeman, fatally damaging his intestine, pancreas, kidneys and colon. He will be buried in Santo Domingo on Wednesday.

Fanjul said the crime will be investigated by a special police commission.

Sanchez had a 36-11 record with three draws as a pro. He vacated his junior featherweight title in 2002 after being diagnosed with cataracts. He lost a bid to regain the title in 2004 in a bout with Joan Guzman.

In his most recent fight, Sanchez defeated Edison Torres of Venezuela on Sept. 17 in Santo Domingo.
