HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — Cuban authorities say Olympic silver medalist boxer Arnaldo Mesa has died. He was 46.
Government-run sports website Jit.cu says Mesa died Monday in the eastern city of Holguin, several days after he was hospitalised for a stroke.
Mesa, a southpaw, was born December 6, 1966, in the eastern province of Santiago.
In 1996 he was runner-up in the bantamweight class at the Olympics in Atlanta. He won a gold medal at the Pan American Games in 1991, in Havana, and again four years later in Mar del Plata, Argentina.
His funeral is planned for Wednesday.
