Ex-champ Cermeno kidnapped; found dead

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Very sad to report that former two-division WBA world champion Antonio Cermeño was found dead after being kidnapped in Venezuela. Police reported that the body of the 45-year-old former champion was found in a bush on the side of the road. Cermeño and three others were abducted on the Ayacucho Motorway to Caracas. The other three managed to escape with the help of other motorists at a service station when the car they in which they were being transported stopped to buy gas. Unfortunately Cermeño, 45, remained a hostage. He was a super bantamweight and featherweight world champion of the World Boxing Association in the mid-90s with 13 world title fights.
